Hurricane Expo

Hurricane Expo

Save the Date: June 8, 2024, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Location: 1212 Magnolia Village Way, Leland, NC 28451


The Hurricane Expo is an opportunity for residents to prepare for a potential hurricane by offering a one stop shop for emergency resources, answering storm-related questions, and making key stakeholders and partner agencies available. Residents are invited to receive valuable information and training from local, state, and federal experts on what to expect and how to prepare by participating in workshops, a public safety roundtable, and visiting with community organizations and partners.

One workshop will feature experts from the National Weather Service delving into the hurricane season outlook. Town staff will guide another workshop to offer insights into flood zone hazards, stormwater management, and the Town’s recent acceptance into FEMA’s Community Rating System program. Both workshops will be offered at 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 1:30 p.m.
