TULSA, Okla. — The City of Tulsa is hosting a flooding preparedness expo on June 6, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the Central Center at Veterans Park, 1028 E. Sixth St.

The event is from 5:30 to 6 p.m.

There will be booths and displays hosted by partners in Tulsa’s Program for Public Information, with a mission to help resident learn about flood insurance and preparedness. A program will begin at 6 p.m., with speakers including Oklahoma State Insurance Commissioner Glen Mulready, Nicole McGavock, Service Hydrologist at the National Weather Service and Bill Smiley, Chief of Emergency Management and Homeland Security at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The City of Tulsa said with Tulsa’s recent promotion to Class 1 in the National Flood Insurance Program, residents in the city limits can take advantage of a 45 percent discount on flood insurance premiums - the lowest rates in the nation.
