Consider This: Attend the WMBF First Alert Hurricane Expo

We have been fortunate this summer to have great weather along the Grand Strand attracting tourists and giving them plenty of undisrupted beach time.

But, this time of year and as we get deeper into the summer the threat of a Hurricane is always there.

Most people don’t think about the potential danger until it is too late.  But the WMBF First Alert Weather team wants to make sure you understand how to prepare.

So, we are hosting a Hurricane preparedness Expo on Thursday at Ripley’s Aquarium.

From evacuation routes, to emergency shelters, to storm surge to how to protect your home, our team of meteorologists along with other experts will have the information you need in case of disaster.

Consider This:  Hurricanes are the most destructive natural weather occurrences on Earth.  Our goal is to help our community be informed and prepared.  Please come to the WMBF Hurricane Expo on Thursday, meet our team and get all of your questions answered.
