Wilmington, NC –

Topsail Beach officials are urging residents to get ready for Hanna. Preparations include tying down loose outdoor items, like garbage cans, and boarding up windows.

Topsail Beach Mayor Howard Braxton says he wants everyone to be ready, even for smaller storms.

"I'm trying not to let everyone get complacent on this. They've been here a long time. They've been through Fran and all the others. So, they've been here and they know what it's like. And this one they're saying is not going to be bad."

Braxton says he's more concerned about Tropical Storm Ike and that Hanna may be good practice for future storms.
