Hurricanes: Before and After the Storm

Hurricane season officially starts on June 1. Are you ready?

Join us on May 25 at 6 p.m. to explore hurricane preparation under “blue skies” and how Old Dominion University is unlocking the potential of technology to make recovery from a hurricane smoother and more efficient.

This virtual event is a part of the Understanding Hampton Roads series, which is the Hampton Roads Community Foundation’s effort to advance civic engagement in southeastern Virginia. It includes forums on key topics to help build understanding, to inspire action, and to bring people together to help improve life in our region.

The event is sponsored by the Hampton Roads Community Foundation in partnership with Institute for Coastal Adaptation and Resilience at Old Dominion University.
