May 19, 2014 Civic League Meeting

Our speaker will be Larry Atkinson, Professor and Eminent Scholar in the Climate Change and Sea Level Rise Initiative in the Ocean, Earth, Atmospheric Sciences at Old Dominion University.

Please join us to hear our speaker talk about a subject close to our hearts.  Norfolk’s location makes us susceptible to increased flooding because of sea level rising.  There are many other aspects of climate change affecting coastal cities such as public health or disaster preparedness.

The meeting begins at 7pm at Mc Kendree Methodist Church fellowship hall.  Bring your neighbors and friends.

Hurricane Preparedness

Virginia’s Hurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday is May 26-31.  The tax holiday is a win-win for everyone: people save money on things they need; retailers sell more; and the Norfolk Emergency Management staff are happy that residents are getting ready for hurricane and flooding season.
