September 26, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Have you ever wished you could ask Google if the roads along your travel route are flooded? Or wished you could know days in advance the extent to which your backyard will flood during a certain tide? Dr. Derek Loftis of VIMS is working to make these things a reality. Join us as Dr. Loftis shares how the use of innovative technologies and citizen scientists is helping Hampton Roads communities predict and prepare for flood events and rising seas.
