It was a very informative and productive first meeting of the Joint Commission on Recurrent Flooding. Presentations were made by the Secretary of Public Safety Brian Moran, Col. Paul Olsen of the US Army Corps of Engineers Norfolk District and Jim Redick, Norfolk's Director of Emergency Preparedness and Response. As Col. Olsen reported, sea level rise and recurrent flooding are a "clear and present danger to Hampton Roads". The Commission will work diligently in the coming months to come up with a host of proposed solutions to present to the General Assembly. Here is a link to the power point presentations (under materials) made by Col. Olsen and Mr. Redick. I will keep you posted on the progress of our important work. http://dls.virginia.gov/interim_studies_flooding.html (4 photos) ...
