Outer Banks Regional Hazard Mitigation Plan Update is Seeking Public Comment

For the past 10 months, Dare and Currituck Counties have been preparing an update to the 2015 hazard mitigation plan.  This planning process is required to remain eligible for federal FEMA disaster funding and to help the Outer Banks region to become more disaster-resistant through implementation of sound mitigation projects.  This updated plan focuses primarily on natural hazards such as coastal storms, flooding, tornadoes, etc., but also includes some technological (human-caused) hazards. The public is invited to review and comment on the draft 2020 Outer Banks Region Hazard Mitigation plan by going to www.obx-hmp.com and providing your comments and feedback by January 31, 2020.
