The National Weather Service announced two upcoming dates for hurricane community forums, which are being offered both virtually and in person.
The free public discussions about hurricane preparedness include a presentation from a meteorologist with the National Weather Service on hurricanes and their impacts on Eastern North Carolina. The forums will cover why the public should never focus on just the category of the storm, and will also discuss all of the impacts any tropical cyclone can bring.
The forums will also review the hurricane outlook for the 2022 season, and will transition to a community discussion where attendees can ask any questions they may have
Forums took place last month in Holly Ridge and Pine Knoll Shores, and two more are expected to be held on the Outer Banks in August.
- The first upcoming forum will be held Wednesday night, July 20, at 6:00 p.m. in Oriental, and also online. Click here to register for the virtual July 20 meeting.
- The second forum will be held Monday night, July 25, at 6:00 p.m. in Morehead City, and also online. Click here to register for the virtual July 25 meeting.
For online attendees, the audio and video will play over your computer or mobile device with internet access. You will also have the ability to ask questions via the question feature of the software or you can unmute your microphone and ask verbal questions as well.
