Sue Marticek in Florida after Hurricane Florience

As Hurricane Florence formed in the Atlantic and set its sight on the Carolinas, Compass 82 focused on alerting regional residents to prepare for this long-lived destructive storm.

Our easy-to-follow tip-sheets, Preparing For A Major Storm and After The Flood, were designed to deliver critical information in a way that is clear and concise and, as a result, reduce the panic that comes with the uncertainty of an extreme weather event.

These tip-sheets were distributed throughout the Southeastern U.S. via newswire on September 11, 2018 and posted to Compass 82’s website so that anyone in the path of any major storm could easily access and/or download them to use as a guide to personal preparedness.

Six days later, on September 17, 2018, Compass 82 Founder and Executive Director, Sue Marticek, appeared on New Jersey’s News 12 to discuss the first and best steps in the beginning stages of recovery for Carolinians affected by Florence’s aftermath.
