This important program, led by Erin Molyneux and David Jakim, who are Board Members of the Center for Disaster Resilience Solutions, will provide up-to-date information about specific steps everyone should take to be better prepared for the next natural disaster. As a waterfront community, it is important to recognize the risks and vulnerabilities that a changing climate poses to our peninsula and to mitigate these risks through preparedness and community action. This presentation will review the extent of flooding during Superstorm Sandy and discuss current flood maps, which shed light onto what may be coming next. This event is not to be missed!
Participants are invited to join us in person or virtually over Zoom.
