The Weather Channel and Time Warner Cable on Tuesday headed to a Brooklyn community hit hard by Hurricane Sandy.

It's been nearly a year since the storm hit the city.

Weather channel personalities and other experts spoke to students at PS 15 in Red Hook at a "Connect with Weather event".

They stressed how to be prepared for and how to handle situations like Sandy.

"It's preparedness, I mean we want people to be prepared, we want them to get tuned in when there's a weather disaster, take it serious because let's face it, meteorology today in 2013 is a lot different than it was in 1993. We are better at what we do. We can give you a pretty good idea as to what we're gonna be dealing with and when it's coming in. So my point is if we tell you it's gonna get bad, more than likely it's gonna get bad," said Weather Channel Meteorologist Jim Cantore.

NY1's Jeanine Ramirez stopped in to talk about her experience covering the storm.

Time Warner Cable is the parent company of NY1.
