Whatever you did LAST hurricane season to keep the storms away…please do it again!! But, when storms come or there is a need for emergency sheltering, 16 teams from New Hanover County Health & Human Services are ready to set up, manage, and support our shelters. Each year, teams practice set up of a shelter site and even role play a disaster survivor to check processes and equipment. EM works to support these great teams and talks through what to do and how to best help survivors who have to come to a disaster shelter site.

Hot-hot-hot is the phrase for today. The record temp according to US National Weather Service Wilmington NC for our area is 99 degrees...we may break that today, and it will feel like it's closer to 112. Remember...NEVER leave people or pets in your vehicle, even "for a second".

We may see some thunderstorms later today into this evening. It's also a king tide week, so we may see minor coastal flooding during high tide this evening. #ReadyNHC #LookBeforeYouLock
