MOREHEAD CITY – Meteorologists at the National Weather Service office in Newport want to teach folks more about hurricane preparedness and answer their questions.
The office is set to host a community forum on hurricanes 6-8 p.m. Monday at the Crystal Coast Civic Center at 3505 Arendell St. in Morehead City. There’s no charge to attend and all ages are welcome.
Meteorologists will highlight topics such as why you should never just focus on the category of a storm and why coastal residents should prepare every year for hurricanes.
“We have a lot of new people moving to our area each year while others have experienced many storms, as recently as Florence” said Warning Coordination Meteorologist Erik Heden. “Hurricane preparedness is something every resident should know about with our close proximity to the ocean.”
