2006 Florida Governor's Hurricane Conference

Jim Williams of HurricaneCity.com attended the 2005 National Hurricane Conference. Below you will find video clips & pictures of this event. The assorted audio you hear from the conference was captured with the camcorder on open microphones in large rooms (audio at times will be difficult to hear). Jim's interviews with several meteorologist's at the conference can be heard on May 1st at 8:00PM ET on the quarterly show called "Weather and the Media" and the audio interviews will be much clearer. On this show Jim will discuss the conference & how it all went with complete unedited video. Most of the video below was done without a tripod, some of this video was done while driving with my arm resting on the center console not allowing fully stable video even though the stabilizer was on. Dial-up users, please use the Real Player links for immediate playback with no download required.

  • On the way to the 2005 National Hurricane Conference I took some damage video of Gulf Beach & Perdido Key, Florida. I also stopped in Orange Beach, Alabama on the way towards New Orleans. In between these damage shots you will see video from the 2005 National Hurricane Conference regarding Hurricane Ivan. Watch it here with Real Player.
  • Before heading to New Orleans, I stopped in Pass Christian, Mississippi. In 1969, Hurricane Camille came ashore here causing a massive storm surge & killed many. In this video you can see how high the surge was & what the area looks like now. Watch it here.
  • This video shows driving down Poydras Street in New Orleans towards the 2005 National Hurricane Conference.
  • Audio of former NHC director Neil Frank & Jim Williams talking what could happen in New Orleans. Listen.
  • On the way back from the 2005 National Hurricane Conference, I stopped to visit Dauphin Island, Alabama. The island was affected by Hurricane Ivan as well as many other hurricanes in history. This video gives a view of the entire island and what it looks like today. Watch it here.
The following are digital snapshots, taken before, during and after the 2005 National Hurricane Conference.
