53 Where can I get real-time advisories for tropical cyclones?

There are three good ways to get these. Either telnet to a site and
peruse the advisories you would like to see via a menu, have the advisories
sent directly to you via email, or visit sites via the World Wide Web.

Option 1: Telnet to a site
---------------------------
The site that has a very comprehensive listing is the Weather
Underground at University of Michigan. Simply telnet to:
downwind.sprl.umich.edu 3000

Make sure to include the '3000' at the end of the command. From
there you have a simple menu driven system to get to the USA National
Hurricane Center, the USA Central Pacific Hurricane Center, and the
USA Joint Typhoon Warning Center products.

Option 2: Advisories automatically sent to you
-----------------------------------------------
WX-TROPL was created for people who want receive, as an email,
tropical bulletins originating from the US National Hurricane Center, the
Central Pacific Hurricane Center, and the Joint Typhoon Warning Center. To
get information as to how to sign up onto WX-TROPL, ftp to po.uiuc.edu and
use anonymous FTP to retrieve the file WX-TALK.DOC from the directory
"wx-talk". If you don't have ftp access, contact either Chris Novy
<chris@siu.edu> or Charley Kline <cvk@uiuc.edu>.

Option 3: Get the advisories via surfing the Web
-------------------------------------------------
The World Wide Web is a great source for real-time tropical cyclone
advisories. For brevity here are some reliable http sites (provided by
