Do you have household hazardous waste you need to get rid of? October 9th is your chance.
Great information on how to properly dispose of both latex and non-latex paints.

We are getting closer to our Residential Household Hazardous Waste collection day! So it's important that citizens know how to properly dispose of their materials and know exactly what is considered hazardous waste.

✨PAINTS AND PAINT RELATED MATERIALS✨

Most household paints and materials contain volatile organic compounds. When these compounds are mixed with other materials, not sealed properly, exposed to heat or sunlight for extended periods of time, they can cause harm to people and the environment.

Bring any left over paints, varnishes, polishes, and other related materials to our collection day on Saturday, October 9, 2021. These will be collected by a certified HHW collector and be disposed of properly (incineration).

Get An Insurance Checkup

Call your insurance company or agent and ask for an insurance check-up to make sure you have enough homeowners insurance to repair or even replace your home. Don’t forget coverage for your car or boat. Remember, standard homeowners insurance doesn’t cover flooding. Whether you’re a homeowner or renter, you’ll need a separate policy for it, and it’s available through your company, agent or the National Flood Insurance Program at www.floodsmart.gov. Act now as flood insurance requires a 30-day waiting period. Finally, know where your insurance documents and contact information are located, and be sure to take them with you if you have to evacuate.

Day 3: Inland Flooding
Inland flooding is the most deadly and serious threat hurricanes bring to inland areas of North Carolina. Overall, most hurricane deaths over the past 30 years have been the result of flooding, many of which have occurred in automobiles as people attempt to drive through flooded areas where water covers the road. It is important to realize the amount of rain a tropical system produces is not related to the intensity of the wind. Weak hurricanes and even tropical storms have caused disastrous floods throughout history.

High Winds

Even tropical storm force winds (39 to 73 mph) are capable of tossing around debris and causing damage. Tropical storm force winds usually strike hours ahead of the actual hurricane’s eye.
Hurricane force winds can easily destroy poorly constructed buildings and mobile homes. Debris such as signs, roofing material, and items left outside become flying missiles in high wind. Falling trees cause extensive damage to power lines, towers and underground water lines.

Assemble Disaster Supplies

Day 2: Assemble Disaster Supplies

You’re going to need supplies not just to get through the storm but for the potentially lengthy and unpleasant aftermath. Have enough non-perishable food, water and medicine to last each person in your family a minimum of one week. Electricity and water could be out for at least that long. You’ll need extra cash, a 30-day supply of medicines, a battery-powered radio and flashlights. Many of us have cell phones, and they all run on batteries. You’re going to need a portable, crank or solar powered USB charger. Before the storm, be sure to fill up your car or a gas can. If the power goes out, you will be unable to pump gas. To learn more about what to include in your disaster supply kit - watch the video below.

Develop An Evacuation Plan

May 9-15 Is Hurricane Preparedness Week. So we will be sharing some information from the National Hurricane Center and National Weather Service to help you prepare.
Day 1: One of the greatest potentials for loss of life related to a hurricane is from the storm surge. The first thing you need to do is find out if you live in a storm surge hurricane evacuation zone or if you're in a home that would be unsafe during a hurricane by visiting https://knowyourzone.nc.gov. If you are, figure out where you'd go and how you'd get there if told to evacuate. If possible, have multiple options and be sure to account for your pets and put the plan in writing.
