Gov. Pat McCrory is advising North Carolina residents to prepare for hurricane season, which officially begins June 1.
McCrory has declared Sunday through Saturday as Hurricane Preparedness Week. He's encouraging residents to update their emergency plans and supply kits. Hurricane season runs through November.
North Carolina already experienced tropical weather when Tropical Storm Ana brought heavy rain to the coast earlier this month.
Emergency kits should contain enough non-perishable food and a gallon of water per person per day to last three to seven days.
