WHERE: Richland Library Sandhills
763 Fashion Dr.,
Columbia, SC 29229

WHO: Free & open to the public

Are you ready? The 2018 hurricane season starts June 1, and a group of the nation’s top hurricane forecasters are predicting an above-average season, with as many as 14 named storms. We want to keep you and your family ahead of the storm by having an engaged conversation on weather patterns, potential storm impact and storm preparedness. Join Richland Library for Hurricane Preparedness from 2 – 3:30 p.m., Saturday, May 19 at Richland Library Sandhills (763 Fashion Drive).

WLTX Meteorologist Nicole Steeves is facilitating the panel discussion, which includes:
Jim Gandy, WLTX Chief Meteorologist
John Quagliariello, NWS Warning Coordination Meteorologist
Derrec Becker, SCEMD Chief of Public Information & External Affairs
Pam Bartley, American Red Cross Disaster Program Manager
A question-and-answer session is scheduled to follow.

Then explore resources and tools that would be perfect additions to your own hurricane preparedness kit. A lucky few have a chance to walk away with their own weather radios.

For questions, please contact Emily Stoll at 803-587-3637 or email
