It’s almost time for hurricane season, and the Museum of Science & Industry will host its free Tampa Bay Hurricane Expo to get the word out on how to be ready.
The expo — hosted by MOSI, Hillsborough County and the City of Tampa — will take place May 31 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the museum, 4801 E. Fowler Ave.
Hurricane season begins June 1 and continues through Nov. 30. The expo’s goal is to raise awareness about the importance of disaster preparedness by teaching hat to do before, during and after a storm.
Residents will learn the importance of having a solid disaster plan in place well in advance, so they can quickly recover after a storm.
The event will provide a kid-friendly entertainment, games and other activities. Adult and children can also have a chance to see various vehicles from first-responder agencies, as well as a variety of speakers and vendors.
Among the speakers will be professional meteorologists during question-and-answer weather panels from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. There also will be a resiliency/survivor’s panel at 10 a.m, where guests can hear stories from people who have experienced and recovered from a disaster, along with expert advice and preparation techniques to protect themselves and their homes.
