This past spring, researchers from N.C. State’s Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management gathered insight from Ocracoke community members related to developing a virtual information hub for disaster recovery efforts.

This virtual information hub could help Ocracoke and other coastal communities better respond to future disasters and crises such as hurricanes and pandemics. 

Ann Savage and Dr. Whitney Knollenberg will host a public presentation of the findings from this work at 4:30 p.m. Thursday Dec. 1, in the Ocracoke Community Center.

The one-hour presentation will be held at the Ocracoke Community Center and light refreshments will be served. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Knollenberg,, by Tuesday, Nov. 29.
