Joy Branham, chief executive officer for the Onslow County and Coastal Carolina chapters of the Red Cross, said there are many convenient ways for residents to get information to prepare, from the upcoming Hurricane Preparedness Fair to a Red Cross hurricane app available for mobile devices.

With nearly a million downloads to date, Branham said the hurricane app has been a popular one and includes a wide variety of resources for being ready before, during and after a storm. There’s information on emergency kits, what to do in a power outage, preparing a home disaster response plan, and what to do in case of an evacuation.
