2010 Office Open House


The 2010 NWS Newport/Morehead City, NC (MHX) open house was a fantastic sucess! We are estimating that 450 to 500 people came to gain a better understanding of their local office. People in attendence were from towns all over the MHX's County Warning Area (CWA) and from as well as visitors from PA, VA, CA, NJ, PR, MD, MA.


Participants were a part of two weather balloon launches, office tours, piball releases, kids games, a suprise visit from Smokey Bear, and a ton of other informational activities.


There were an estimated 100 kids, and the "Make Your Own Weather Balloons" was a big hit. An interactive floodplain model, as well as "Get the P3 Hurricane Hunter into the Hurricane" game were also enjoyed by the kids.




A big thanks goes out to all who partnered in making our Open House so enjoyable!
