20201201T1230 20201201T1330 America/Chicago Disasters and Disruptions Panel (LIVE EVENT)

The Alabama and Mississippi Coast has experienced - and is experiencing - a variety of disasters and disruptions from major hurricanes (Zeta, Sally, Katrina 15 years ago, Ivan 16 years ago), the Deepwater Horizon oil disaster (10 years ago), multiple freshwater inflow events, harmful algae blooms, a recession and the ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic. However, our coastal communities have been resilient to the wide array of stressors that have impacted our coast. During this panel you will hear a variety of perspectives from coastal leaders and scientists regarding how science informs policy to prepare for and recover from disasters and disruptions. (Images: Satellite image of Hurricane Sally making landfall; Observed water levels during Hurricane Zeta)
