The Next Storm Surge: How High's the Water, Mama?

The LSU AgCenter, Louisiana Sea Grant and Bayou Interfaith Shared Community Organizing will be presenting "The Next Storm Surge" at the Terrebonne Parish Main Library on Monday, August 17 from 5pm-8pm in the large meeting room.

The presentation will include:

> Historical Hurricane Impacts on Coastal Louisiana; Factors Influencing Hurricane Storm Surge in Coastal Louisiana

> “What If” Hurricane Storm Surge Impacts on Terrebonne and Lafourche Parishes

> New Flood Zones: What They Mean and How They Will Impact You

This program was hosted at the Main Library last year and, since then, storm surge and wind-speed models have been updated, taking the impact of Hurricanes Gustav and Ike into account.

Lsu AgCenter staff will be available to help those in attendance access windspeed, ground level and storm surge models available online through the LSU AgCenter.

Attendance is free.
