WilmingtonBiz Talk: The Start Of Hurricane Season

By Vicky Janowski, posted Jun 3, 2021
Tuesday marked the start of the Atlantic hurricane season. On the heels of an active season last year and forecasters’ prediction for another above-average season during the months ahead, this week’s WilmingtonBiz Talk was a talk with the area’s top emergency officials on preparations.
 
The panel was Tommy Batson, Pender County’s emergency management director; Edward Conrow, Brunswick County’s emergency services director; and Steven Still, New Hanover County’s emergency management director.
 
They discussed lessons learned since Hurricane Florence devastated the region in 2018, precautions against another major (or even) minor storm, and individuals and businesses can prepare.
