The Norfolk Tides hosted their annual Hurricane Preparedness Day on Tuesday, June 29 due to a rain out on June 2.  This year, as in years past, Navy had a big presence, joining the Tides and community leaders in pushing hurricane and flood awareness.

Flooding is the #1 natural disaster in the U.S., and it takes 30 days for a new flood insurance policy to take effect.
