Hurricane Expo has Free Resources for Storm Preparedness

Hosted by WestShore Plaza Mall, this year's expo will offer everything you need for the 2017 hurricane season

Residents and families can prepare, plan, and stay informed for the 2017 hurricane season at Hillsborough County's free Hurricane Expo on Saturday, June 3, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the WestShore Plaza Mall.

This year's expo brings together local partners and features activities for adults and children, including education displays, touch-a-truck station, disaster preparedness booths, and a severe weather panel with local meteorology specialists. Disaster response experts from Hillsborough County, the City of Tampa, the City of Temple Terrace, the American Red Cross, and the National Weather Service will also be on hand to answer questions and provide information on how to protect families and homes from hurricanes and other disasters.

Expo attendees will be able to identify their evacuation zone, pick up preparedness materials, and sign up for HCFL Alert, and raffles. The first 500 to visit all the stations and fill out a passport will receive a NOAA weather radio and a disaster starter kit.
