Recurrent Flooding

A subcommittee of Virginia's Secure Commonwealth Panel has released a new report detailing recommendations to mitigate the impact of recurrent flooding and sea level rise along coastal Virginia.  Among the report’s recommendations is a so-called incident command system, designed to knit together various statewide efforts to combat rising seas from a centralized, state vantage.  We're joined today by members of that subcommittee for a closer look at their report and its recommendations.

Scheduled Guests:

Jim Redick -
 Director of Emergency Preparedness and Response, City of Norfolk

Michelle Hamor - Civil Engineer, Army Corps of Engineers

Mary-Carson Saunders - Post-Graduate Fellow, William & Mary's Virginia Coastal Policy Clinic

Carlton Hershner - Director, Center for Coastal Resources Management, VIMS
