> 1. There is an N-MAP application that NHC uses that creates VTEC code for tropical storm and hurricane watches and warnings. There is a bug in this code that is improperly coding the message. Specifically, the code has trouble with properly cancelling a TS Warning when changing from a TS Warning and Hurricane Watch to a Hurricane Warning for the same area. A fix for this problem is needed as soon as possible. TSB Chief Mark DeMaria has submitted an NCO Help Desk ticket with Priority Level: 1 - Immediate (ASAP/1 hour) on this issue.
