New Hanover County holds hurricane evacuation drill

Hurricane Katrina reminded all of us just how important it is to prepare before a hurricane strikes. New Hanover County Emergency Management officials are getting their ducks in a row in the event a massive storm hits our coast. A workshop today centered around a fictional category four hurricane they called "Laura," and every agency, from fire and rescue to the school system, responded with a plan on how to begin the evacuation process. The main goal is to help residents react and evacuate. Evacuation simulations are planned for tomorrow in Harnett and Johnston Counties.
