The news has been full of the devastating impacts that Harvey and Irma have had on the states of Texas and Florida and neighboring islands and questions are being raised about the role of climate change in hurricanes and what we should do when hurricanes hit. In this panel and discussion faculty from Marine Sciences and Environmental Engineering will explain the basics of hurricane science and what we do and do not know about the relationship between these events and climate change. The Connecticut Insurance Department joins the panel to discuss Connecticut’s recovery after Irene and Sandy and the latest approaches in our state and across the nation to be better prepared and resilient to the impacts of hurricanes.
