NC Seeks Info From Coastal Residents About Hurricane Evacuation Plans


North Carolina officials want to know how you react to an evacuation during a hurricane.

For the next month, interviewers with North Carolina Emergency Management will call hundreds of coastal residents to learn more about their past behaviors and future plans when evacuation orders are issued.

Each call will last 15 to 20 minutes and will help local emergency managers better understand how to predict how residents may act when hurricanes threaten their area.

The data will also help drive local transportation and sheltering decisions.
