County leaders prep for hurricane season

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County leaders are getting ready for this hurricane season.

People from different government agencies, service providers and institutions met at the Emergency Operations Center in Wilmington this morning. The crews were responding to a simulated category four hurricane named Alice. Dylan Lee says there is never too much preparation before a serious event happens.

“So the point for those that are in positions of government and institutions and have a great deal of responsibility for the citizens is to be prepared,” Lee said.

Lee says they are encouraging people to use their emergency website for updates and information.
