Resources for Hurricane Safety in North Carolina

Floyd Tar River Flooding

As of today (August 23rd), it looks like North Carolina is going to get some serious weather over the weekend due to Hurricane Irene. If this Weather Channel graphic turns out to be correct, then Irene will be hitting the shores of North Carolina on August 28th at 2am as a category 3 hurricane.

While some in North Carolina have never been part of a hurricane, many still remember the effects of Hurricane Floyd in 1999. As you can see in the picture to the left, Floyd left much of Eastern North Carolina under water. The picture, which was taken by Dave Saville of FEMA, is of a neighborhood in Greenville.

With the threat of Hurricane Irene only days away, the people of North Carolina need to jog their memory as to proper hurricane safety. Below we have provided tips, links and videos to make sure you’re ready in case Irene takes a turn for the worse.
