ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (WKRG) – Hurricane season officially begins in a couple of weeks, but Baldwin County officials want to be sure you’re prepared now.

The Baldwin County Emergency Management Agency hosted an expo Wednesday at the Orange Beach Event Center to assist residents with questions and better prepare them for the upcoming season.

Most people we spoke with tell us they are already prepared because they know how bad a tropical system can be for our area. A few people tell News 5 they learned a lot at today’s event and plan to put their new plans into action this week.

The event runs until 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Orange Beach Event Center located at The Wharf.
