Disaster specialists will be at the North Carolina State Fair to help property owners learn how to minimize storm damage to their homes and businesses.
Building-advice teams from employees of North Carolina Emergency Management and the Federal Emergency Management Agency will be available starting Monday.
Thousands of North Carolina homes and businesses have been damaged in the past year by a combination of tornado outbreaks, flooding and hurricanes.
Advisors will offer suggestions about building stronger and smarter to minimize damage from severe winds and flooding. They'll also provide cleanup tips for battling mold.
