Hurricane season starts on June 1 and runs through November 30 each year. Fortunately, you can kick off your hurricane season preparations by attending the free Tampa Bay Hurricane Expo at MOSI on Saturday, May 31, 2014 from 9am-2pm.
Proposed Schedule of Events:
10am Hear stories from people who experienced a disaster and from experts who will offer steps you can take to prepare now
11am-1pm A panel of meteorologists from local news stations and experts from the National Weather Service and local emergency management offices will address attendees’ questions
12pm Business disaster toolkit workshop for business owners
Participating vendors will include private companies and government agency representatives who will help take the mystery out of storm season preparation. You will be able to look up your evacuation zone and visit the 72-hour emergency supply display which shows the quantity of supplies needed by a family to survive 72 hours following a disaster.
Expo guests can receive discounted admission to the MOSI exhibits and one standard IMAX® Dome Theatre film during their visit. Please visit MOSI for guidelines and additional admission information.
