Hurricanes: Before and After the Storm

May 27, 2021

In advance of hurricane season, the Hampton Roads Community Foundation presented a virtual event, Hurricanes: Before and After the Storm.

It featured several distinguished speakers who discussed hurricane preparedness, the importance of preparing for a recovery under blue skies, and Old Dominion University's approach to help the region’s communities recover after a hurricane event.

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.
