GREENSBORO, NC -- Hurricane season is here, and the time is now to prepare. The WFMY Weather Team will air the News 2 Hurricane Special Saturday night at 7:30.

Whipping winds, driving rains, and devastating storm surge are all threats that our Carolina coast faces during tropical season. Hurricane Arthur was the earliest hurricane to make a direct hit in North Carolina history. This serves at a reminder that we need to be prepared for hurricanes to strike at anytime in Hurricane Season.

The 30-minute special will provide you with tips on how to prepare for a storm, , give you an education on what makes hurricanes so powerful, and even let you in on the secrets behind hurricane forecasting.

Again, the special airs at 7:30 on WFMY Saturday, July 12th. We hope you'll join us.

WFMY News 2 would love your feedback on our facebook page, or Twitter @WFMY. Please feel free to tweet our Meteorologists @grant_gilmore @TimBuckleyWX or @EdMatthews2 any time with weather questions or comments.
