P3 Hurricane Hunter comes to Wilmington

Though not quite hurricane season, hurricane awareness is coming to the Port City in a big way.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s P3 Orion Hurricane Hunter flies into the heart of hurricanes, gathering information to help meteorologists predict where a storm might be headed.

The plane will be at Wilmington International Airport Thursday along with other exhibits. You can stop by and see it from 3:00 until 5:00 p.m.
