Those living in North Carolina, South Carolina and southern Virginia are in the bull’s-eye of Hurricane Florence. Given the forecast for excessive flooding, it is likely people in those states will be dealing with the aftermath for awhile.

Even if you’re not reporting on an affected location, this may be a good time to ask some questions of your local public health leaders and write about disaster preparedness issues.

Bara Vaida, AHCJ’s core topic leader on infectious diseases, has compiled a treasure trove of resources to help you craft those questions, followed by some links specific to the Carolinas and southern Virginia.
