Easley: "Hurricane Preparedness Week"

This week is “Hurricane Preparedness Week” in North Carolina, so says Governor Easley. The proof is here.

So let’s look at some Hurricane related polling data. The article linked above cites a recent Mason Dixon Poll of hurricane afflicted states. The article claims that the poll “indicate[s] that most North Carolinians are not concerned about or prepared for major storms during this hurricane season.” That’s not really true. The poll showed that people across the hurricane afflicted region (Gulf and East Coast states) were not concerned or prepared, but not North Carolina specifically.

I like to think that North Carolinians are smarter.

In fact, I remember watching a Weather Channel report one day from one of those traveling reporters leading up to a hurricane who was discussing how impressed he was with North Carolina’s coastal residents. They were taking the threat seriously, and were boarding up their homes and business and planned to evacuate, while South Carolina residents took the threat less seriously. I was proud.

You should replace the school support question that you asked with a hurricane question.

Actually Justin, the poll you're referring to is not the one Governor Easley is talking about. The survey the Governor referred to was conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research of 625 adults in North Carolina between May 8 and May 10. It has a margin for error of plus or minus 4%. This is a separate poll from the one for the National Hurricane Survival Initiative, although that one was also conducted by Mason Dixon. I am alarmed as to why you aren't using your blog to encourage North Carolinians to get prepared, especially since the poll also revealed most residents do not know the appropriate methods of preparing for a hurricane. Since North Carolina is the 2nd most hurricane-prone state, I think it is vital for residents to understand the importance of hurricane safety and preparations. I urge people to visit www.readync.gov for more information on preparing for hurricanes and other disasters.
