At a free event on May 6 in Morehead City, the public can learn about hurricanes and get their questions answered by meteorologists and local emergency officials.

Carteret County Emergency Services and the National Weather Service will host a free Hurricane Community Forum on Monday, May 6, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Crystal Coast Civic Center, located at 3505 Arendell Street.

The event will include a presentation by a meteorologist from the National Weather Service on hurricanes and their impacts on Eastern North Carolina, why you should never focus on just the category of the storm, what the hurricane path track means, and the various impacts tropical cyclones can bring to our area.

Local officials will also cover the hurricane outlook for the year while emphasizing that it only takes one storm to make an impact on your life.

At the end of the presentations, a question and answer time will be held where anyone can ask a question about hurricanes and their impact.
