Wake County Emergency Management Monitors Tropical Disturbance

Weather forecasters are watching a tropical weather disturbance that is expected to arrive along the North Carolina coast Sunday, bringing rain to Wake County and surrounding areas.

While this storm is not expected to trigger widespread damaging winds or cause significant impacts, Wake County Emergency Management personnel are monitoring conditions closely should there be a need to respond over the weekend.

"Residents planning outdoor activities over the holiday weekend should remain aware of the forecast and prepare to seek shelter if needed," said Wake County Emergency Management Director Josh Creighton.

This weather event is a good reminder for residents to check their emergency kits and make sure they are stocked with fresh supplies. If you have not assembled your kit, visit the county's preparedness website, ReadyWake.com. It features an easy-to-use checklist to help you know which important items to include in your kit. The site also offers tips on getting ready for weather-related emergencies and how to call for non-emergency assistance in Wake County.
