Using StormReporter - MyCoast Using StormReporter - MyCoast

We’ve worked hard to make using MyCoast as easy as possible. You likely won’t need anything that’s below, but just in case we’ve got an overview on how to use the site here. If you anything is confusing or isn’t working the way you expect, please let us know how we can help.

Logging In to MyCoast

If that’s the case, click on the text that says “Lost your password?” (or click here) and enter the email address you used when you set up your StormReporter account.
