Hurricane Preparedness- Determine Your Risk
June is the time to make weather-readiness a priority in North Carolina. The first step in hurricane preparedness is determining your risk.
Find out now what types of wind and water hazards could happen where you live or work, and then start preparing now for how to handle those hazards.
The coastal areas of North Carolina can be susceptible to storm surge, high winds, flooding, and tornadoes and the central portion can be susceptible to inland freshwater flooding, high winds, and tornadoes. Even when hurricanes stay out at sea, the North Carolina coast can still be impacted by large swells and deadly rip currents.
An informed and motivated public will help to save lives and livelihoods. Prepare and complete an emergency preparedness plan, make or update your emergency kit, and be an example, share you preparedness with others.
