Even though we have had a below average beginning to the 2018 Hurricane Season, please do not let your guard down. September and October are the peak months for the coast of North Carolina, and we are watching Hurricane Florence and several other possible areas of development in the Atlantic Basin. Pay attention to the weather. Have a plan for what to do in the event we are threatened by a hurricane. Some sources that can help you plan for hurricanes are: FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency), NC Department of Public Safety, Brunswick County Emergency Management, The Town of Calabash, The American Red Cross, NC Department of Transportation and SC Department of Transportation (evacuation routes), and Brunswick Electric.
