Hurricane Tracking Satellite About to Fail

Louisiana is no stranger
to hurricanes, and with the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina a very real specter
hanging over the state, lawmakers are distressed to learn that an important
hurricane tracking satellite is about to fail. In an effort to get it replaced
as soon as possible, Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., and Rep. Charles “Charlie”
Melancon, D-Napoleonville, are introducing legislation meant to come up with the
$375 million needed in order to build a new hurricane tracking satellite and
then launch it.
The Advocate
reports
:

“It’s crucial that our nation’s hurricane system be first
class,” Landrieu says in a statement. “With 50 percent of our population living
within 50 miles of the coast, residents in these communities — in Louisiana,
Florida and across the nation — deserve the best technology available to track
impending hurricanes.”

In addition to hurricanes, the satellite detects coastal winds,
storm surges and other weather-related events, such as “El Niño.”

“We need more advanced warning of storms and can’t afford to
slide backward,” Landrieu said. “This requires a long-term
solution.”
