Seminole County Holds Hurricane Expo for Families
SANFORD, Fla. (AP) - Seminole County is holding a hurricane expo to help families prepare for the tropical season.
The county's Office of Emergency Management is hosting the Hurricane Expo on Saturday at the Seminole Towne Center Mall in Sanford. Saturday is also the start of the six-month hurricane season.
A county statement says the "Prepare Seminole" campaign encourages families to develop a disaster plan, get a kit, stay informed and volunteer.
State and local weather officials gathered Friday at the National Hurricane Center in Miami and urged coastal residents to start making preparations now, before any storm threatens shore. They said residents should know whether they live in evacuation zones, stockpile enough supplies to survive several days without power, check their insurance coverage and always heed evacuation orders.
