Red Cross Ready

The two tropical systems this week have Red Cross officials in Eastern Carolina urging you to make sure you're prepared.

We're just entering the busiest part of the hurricane season. The Pitt County chapter of the American Red Cross says it's a good idea to review your own plans and preparations. As far as the Red Cross, they say they're ready.

They also have a plan in place to use up to 30 schools as emergency shelters if needed.
