Hurricane preparedness tips will be offered for Florida's hearing impaired residents

Floridians who are deaf or hard of hearing have the opportunity Thursday to virtually participate in a presentation covering general hurricane preparedness with an ASL interpreter.

The National Weather Service forecast office in New Orleans will be hosting a webinar this evening at 6 PM CDT. Even though there will be some Louisiana-focused material, it will primarily be about general tropical weather information.

Florida residents who are hearing impaired can greatly benefit from this webinar based on hurricane prep and safety. It’s a 1- hour presentation followed by an open Q&A period.

Registration is not required and sign language interpretation will be provided. Here is the link that will go live on Facebook shortly before webinar begins.
