Topic: Are NC Schools Prepared for the Next Hurricane?
While the official Atlantic hurricane season runs June 1 through November 30, September historically has been the most active month for hurricanes affecting North Carolina, with 35 percent of all hurricanes striking the state in that month including Hurricane Florence last year. As a new school year begins, we talk to two education leaders about how these major storms affect our schools and how we can better prepare for the next one. We also talk to a meteorologist on what we might expect for this year’s peak season.
- Mike Maze, WRAL-TV Meteorologist
- Dr. Mike Ward, Former State Superintendent of Public Instruction
- Dr. Meghan Doyle, Superintendent, Craven County Schools
