Hospitals staffed and stocked, ready for a storm

WILMINGTON (WECT) - New Hanover Regional Medical Center says they are stocked and staffed, ready for the storm.

The hospital participates in practice drills throughout the year to prepare for major weather events.

Hospital officials said their staff is more than prepared and knows just when to swing into overdrive.

They recommend anyone on regular medication to get their refills now, in case damage keeps them from being able to make the trip.

All medical procedures are still on schedule until further notice.
