Eastern Pacific Hurricane Center

The Eastern Pacific Hurricane Center was formerly the Regional Specialized Meteorological Center responsible for forecasting Pacific hurricanes in the eastern north Pacific east of 140°W. It was part of the Weather Bureau Forecast Office San Francisco and was based in Redwood City. [Charles J. Neumann.

The EPHC succeeded the previous forecaster, United States Navy Fleet Weather Central in Alameda starting in 1970. It held that role until spring 1988,cite web|author=Robert Sheets|title=The National Hurricane Center — Past, Present, and Future|work=Weather and Forecasting|month=June|year=1990|pages=197|url=http://ams.allenpress.com/archive/1520-0434/5/2/pdf/i1520-0434-5-2-185.pdf|accessdate=2007-08-01] when it was folded into the National Hurricane Center, which took responsibility for the basin starting in the 1988 season.
