Hurricane Preparedness Week For North Carolina May 3rd – May 9th, 2020

This week is North Carolina’s annual Hurricane Preparedness Week.  The National Weather Service and the North Carolina Department of Public Safety are teaming up to bring this hurricane safety campaign to all of North Carolina’s residents.  With warmer weather quickly approaching, now is the time to prepare for hurricane season.  If each North Carolina resident would take a few moments this week to learn about hurricane safety and implement a hurricane safety plan, then we would all be better off when hurricanes threaten our area.  Remember you should prepare EACH and EVERY YEAR, as it only takes ONE Storm!
