lol good luck. Houses in NC don't have basements. They have "crawl spaces", in which, as the name applys, you can only crawl in.

We run to the bathroom and crawl in the tub with stuff over our heads. We do have one shelter in the town and the courthouse has a floor that is below ground. But unless we get more warning than we have been getting, it won't make any difference. By the time I figured out what was going on with the tornado that hit 5 doors down from us in 1995, by the time I got Brianna and got to the hall it was over with.

It's easier to list the counties with the most tornado activity since most of NC's 100 counties have little or no activity.

The Most Active with County Seat for Identification Purposes

Dare County - Manteo
Carteret County - Beaufort
Onslow County - Jacksonville
Duplin County - Kenansville
Robeson County - Lumberton
Wake County - Raleigh

As mentioned before, these areas should not be compared to very active areas such as parts of Oklahoma or Texas. This is only a comparison of the 100 counties within the state of North Carolina.

The city of Wilmington is in New Hanover County and the town of Leland is in Brunswick County.

That sounds good those counties are both in the clear. I guess I'll just dodge the hurricanes then.

I wouldn't say in the clear, just less prone than those others. The closest thing to clear is along the NC-TN border.

I did hear about that area. What would the name of the towns be. A friend of a friend just purchased there. He doesn't like tornados either.
