this new plugin is all about hurricanes. First you select a basin (Atlantic or Eastern Pacific), then you select a year (1995-present) and finally a list of hurricanes for that basin and year are loaded. After you select the one you are interested in, its path will be displayed on a map below, where you can also click the individual path points to show more info. In addition, there is a direct link to a PDF with detailed description of that particular hurricane.
For hurricanes between 1995 and 2010, only the PDF is available, maps are available for hurricanes after and including 2010.
No need to setup anything, just make sure you update your menu file so that a link can be added to your menu.
