The Carolinas Integrated Sciences & Assessments (CISA) a NOAA RISA team, is holding a webinar on December 8, 2015 to discuss the October 2015 flooding event in South Carolina. In early October, a stalled mid-latitude weather system directed a fire hose of deep tropical moisture across South Carolina over a four-day period leading to record-breaking rainfall totals and devastating flooding across the state. Rainfall totals around the Charleston area ranged from 16-27 inches, and many parts of the region experienced major flooding, inundating neighborhoods, roads, and other infrastructure.
This webinar, organized by the Southeast & Caribbean Climate Community of Practice, will focus on the City of Charleston’s response to the flood event and lessons learned that will help the City move forward to face a “new normal” in our changing environment. Several lessons learned in Charleston may apply to many of our coastal communities in the Southeast and Caribbean.
