The Tampa Bay Hurricane Expo is a free, entertaining and informative event for the entire community. There will be dozens of vendors on display, representing private companies and government agencies, to take the mystery out of storm season preparation and make the homework for family disaster planning a little easier.
For a family outing, head on over to MOSI to experience Disasterville featuring WeatherQuest, a 10,000-square-foot exhibition on floods, hail, lightning, tsunamis and volcanoes, including immersion theatres that demonstrate what it’s like to be in an earthquake, hurricane, tornado and wildfire. Sometimes the visual impact this exhibit has can strengthen and reinforce the messages learned from the City and County emergency management sites.
It’s never too late to get prepared for hurricane season. As a family project, you can research how to prepare for and be safe during hurricane season by clicking on the City or County logo to be directed to their emergency management pages. You’ll find a wealth of information there.
