The Dynamics of Extreme Events People and Places project will present its findings from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 14, in the Ocracoke Community Center.

The DEEPP projects seeks to improve our understanding of how families and communities prepare for, are affected by, and recover from extreme storms, which Eastern North Carolina experiences every year.

Over the past two years, the DEEPP team of researchers has been interviewing Ocracoke residents about their experiences before, during, and after Hurricane Dorian.

They have completed their survey in Ocracoke and the final report and would like the opportunity to present their findings to the community

The goal is to provide communities and policy makers with information to use in preparing for and recovering from these events.

After the presentation of results, the DEEPP team will answer any questions and hope to discuss which data will be most useful to the community.
