Even in Central North Carolina, we are susceptible to tropical systems. Tropical depressions, tropical storms and hurricanes can dump many inches of rain on Forsyth County in a matter of hours, causing flooding of streams, streets, homes and businesses. High winds and tornadoes can be expected with such systems. Don’t wait until a storm is approaching to prepare yourself and your family! Prepare now.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1-November 30. Hurricane Preparedness Week — May 25 thru May 31 — is a great time to brush up on your hurricane knowledge and planning. NOAA’s Hurricane Preparedness website is a valuable reference tool. You will find links and the following daily topics on the Hurricane Preparedness website.

  • Sunday – Basics
  • Monday – Storm Surge
  • Tuesday – Winds
  • Wednesday – Inland Flooding
  • Thursday – Forecast Process
  • Friday – Get A Plan!
