Hurricane Preparedness

The 2010 hurricane season officially begins Tuesday June 1st and according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration it is expected to be an active season. So Emergency Managers in the East are hoping people will prepare.

Lowes in Washington sponsored an event on Saturday where Beaufort County Emergency Manager John Pack was on hand to talk to people about how to be prepared for a hurricane.

Pack said that every family should have an evacuation plan and emergency kit. He says in the kit there should be things like blankets, first aid items, and a radio.

According to NOAA they are predicting 14 to 23 tropical storms in the Atlantic, including 8 hurricanes.
