We’re thinking of our friends on the Gulf Coast as they prepare for potential impacts of Tropical Storm Barry. Thankfully, effects of Barry aren’t expected in our area, but what a reminder to be ready! Visit ReadyNHC.com for information & to sign up for emergency news and alerts.

Soon to be named “Barry” may not impact us this weekend, but he’s sure a great reminder to make sure you are #ReadyNHC! Have a plan, make a kit, stay informed!
