I’ve lived here several years now and we’ve had a few near miss hurricanes and tropical storms. But I’ve heard the stories of those who survived Hurricane Fran and Hurricane Floyd. Our news department has even done stories with folks who rode out Hurricane Hazel. And I take their advice to heart.
People throughout Southeastern North Carolina are prepping for the potential impact of Hurricane Matthew. Responders are also working to get prepared before the storm heads up the coast. Both the Wilmington Fire Department and American Red Cross are asking those in the community to prepare for the storm and help make their jobs easier.
