Access & Features
Residents and businesses in Hampton Roads face substantial challenges in confronting sea level rise as well as storm surges from hurricanes, nor?easters and other storms. Heavy development along the coast as well as the area?s mostly flat landscape mean that the region is particularly vulnerable to damage from flooding, shoreline erosion and property damage. Adapting to sea level rise will require hard decisions and long term planning with respect to future developments and infrastructure.
Join us for a discussion of the effects of sea-level rise and flooding in Coastal Virginia with Sarah Stafford.
