Raleigh sees the most flooding impacts from hurricanes in September and October. To help you prepare, we’re holding public meetings that cover:

  • Why flooding happens;
  • What to expect in different areas of the city;
  • What the City does to reduce impacts from flooding; and,
  • Available community resources.

WRAL meteorologist Greg Fishel will give opening remarks on August 28. The Raleigh Police and Fire Departments also will share hurricane safety tips and explain the importance of safe driving during a rain storm.

North Carolina Floodplain Mapping will provide information about flood risks, flood insurance, and help you identify areas near your home that are likely to flood.

Do you experience ongoing flooding? Let us know by completing this survey. During the meeting, we'll highlight programs that would be best for you.

Can’t find a babysitter? Children ages 5 and up are invited to learn about how we can protect the fish and wildlife living in our streams (Children must be accompanied by an adult).

There are two dates available for this series. No reservations are required.

Tuesday, August 28 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Walnut Creek Wetland Center, 950 Peterson Street.
Wednesday, August 29 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. (Click this link to add the event to your calendar)
