There have been many posts of lists of frequencies to listen to when hurricanes threaten, but the vast majority of them are badly out of date (if they list the old AT&T stations or the National Hurricane Center HF network, it's a dead giveaway - both have been dead for some time).  This is a great list for reference.  Print this out!
