Hurricane Irene’s strength is building wind gust and speeds are still significant. In the event of a hurricane or disaster are you prepared? Is your family prepared? Do you have a safety-ready evacuation plan? Do you have or own emergency kits?
These are very important questions that we need to ask ourselves in the event of disaster. Where and when to evacuate to shelters? Where to find assistance and stay abreast of weather warnings and watches?
Residents and visitors of Outbanks, North Carolina have been warned to evacuate now.
Hurricane season ends November 30, prepare now!
Details are available on getting a kit, making a plan and staying informed from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management: http://www.vaemergency.gov/readyvirginia/getakit
