Flood Warning System
The county receives flood warnings from the National Weather Service via the Emergency Broadcast System and the N.C. Division of Emergency Management. Within 24 hours or less, the Craven County Emergency Services Office acts upon all warnings received and predicts the level of flooding anticipated using HURREVAC (the county's computerized flow/storm surge mode). That information is passed on to the public via local radio, television stations, fixed siren systems, public address systems, and the Emergency Broadcast System. The county has also adopted an Emergency Operations Plan developed to address the multiple hazards that threaten the jurisdiction. The Emergency Operations Plan presents a basic plan for Craven County officials that clearly defines who will do what and when during an emergency.
