Officials at the National Hurricane Center say they're making their tropical storm advisories easier to read.

The public advisories give the positions of tropical depressions, named storms and hurricanes in the Atlantic, Caribbean
and Gulf of Mexico.

They also include information about a storm's strength, how it's moving and any watches or warnings.

Spokesman Dennis Feltgen says some people have had trouble
finding the information they need in the advisories, especially
when a storm is close to making landfall.

Examples of the new advisories were posted Tuesday on the
hurricane center's Web site.

The proposed changes would group watches and warnings separately from the storm forecast summaries.
