NC Governor Roy Cooper has declared a State of Emergency as Hurricane Florence approaches both North and South Carolina. This act begins the process of coordination between state, county and city services. This includes trained, certified professionals who work to provide safety, support and communications.
At this time, the City is monitoring all possibilities associated with Hurricane Florence and coordinating with Guilford County Emergency Services.
Greensboro uses a very extensive emergency services plan that allows it to effectively work as a team. The City will work with media partners, utility services and others to make sure you receive accurate dependable information. The most recent reports show a high probability of life-threatening impacts across the Carolinas at the end of the week. Preparedness is always encouraged, no matter what the area ultimately deals with during this event. As this event progresses, the City will post additional information online.
Residents are urged to be prepared. This means having your medication prepped ahead of time, having water and food on hand to last 72 hours. It also means making plans for your pets.
