- Recconaissance Aircraft (Sent into the storm, gain limited measurements as they can only measure when the storm is close to the shore. Provides an accurate location of the eye.)
- Radiosondes (Small radiotrasmitters fixed to balloons, as the baloon rises it measures the air temperature, humidity and pressure. Can only be released over land.)
- Dropsondes (The same as radiosondes except they are fitted to parachutes and dropped into the storm from Recconaissance Aircraft.)
- Weather Radar (Measures wind fields, rain intensity and storm movement as it nears the coast. Only short term warnings from less than 200m away from the shore.
- Un-manned Ariel Vehicals (Can fly into the storm and send data to computors. Takes measurements close to the water surface.)
Prediction Methods Continued:
- Weather Satelites (Basic cloud imagery, temperatures of land and sea, wind motions and rainfall.)
- Ships and Buoys (Gets information about wind speed and direction, air pressure, air and water temperatures and wave conditions within the storm.
- Disaster Plan (Safe meeting points, escape routes, contacts, pet plans, insurance, emergency kit/supplies)
- Disaster Supply Kit (Water, Food, Blankets, Pillows, First aid, Torch etc.)
- Building Design (Deep Foundations, Stilts, Storm proof doors and roofs, window shutters.)
- Evacuation (Signed exits, warning system)
- Cyclone Shelters (Storm proof buildings with supplies)
- Mangrave Trees (Natural Barrior against the wind and rain.)
- Cyclone Walls (Protection from the storm surge, and a safe evacuation route.)
- Levees and Concrete Sea walls (Designed to hold back flood waters and storm surges.)
