Working with regional partners, we have been updating our Hazard Mitigation Plan to help identify projects to enhance mitigation and resiliency efforts. Our plan (https://bit.ly/3pdxgnZ) is making its way to NC Emergency Management and FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency for review and approval. We would love the chance to share the plan with you and get your thoughts and feedback. Please join us for this information session and help us plan. New Hanover County Government, NC

Snow lovers might be out of luck here in ILM, but you might see a few flurries just north of here (no accumulations though!). This is a good reminder that we do occasionally see the white stuff here and is a great time to take a look at your winter preparedness plans to make sure you are #ReadyNHC!

Keep a weather eye to the sky Christmas Eve - a drop from the upper 60's to the 30's will definitely produce some bumpy weather. #ReadyNHC New Hanover County Government, NC
