Signup deadline is Friday for ‘storm tides’ workshop

At DCA July 30

Every hurricane season, residents watch storms travel along the coast and are left to wonder, “How will storm-related flooding might impact my community?” Soon, residents need not be left in the dark.

On Thursday, July 30, researchers from Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) will host a workshop to help residents understand the factors that impact storm tide risk in their communities. The workshop is titled “Understanding Storm Tides and Sea Level Change: What coastal communities need to know”.

The workshop will be held from 9:45 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 30, at the Deltaville Community Center. The workshop is free and includes lunch and presentations from Dr. John Brubaker, Dr. John Boon and Dr. David Forrest. The workshop is sponsored by the Virginia Sea Grant Program at VIMS.

Participation is limited to the first 50 people who register by Friday, July 24. To register, contact Anne Smith (marina technical specialist) at 684-7768 or download the registration form at
