On the morning of Saturday, July 11, a major training exercise will unfold in Shallotte, complete with a few homes being destroyed.
Brunswick County Emergency Services was recently awarded a hurricane grant, and director Randy Thompson said they’re putting the money toward training for a large-scale disaster.
To do so, they’ll create the disaster.
“We’ve actually got a few homes we’re going to destroy,” Thompson said.
The grant included money to lease the property on which the homes will be destroyed.
