The forum will present important information on personal preparedness actions and updates on weather service forecast products. Topics include adapting preparedness efforts to meet the challenges presented by COVID-19 and why it’s important to never just focus on the category of a storm but instead focus on the impacts. Attendees will also have the opportunity to ask questions.
