Coastal Flood Monitoring System Training
Thursday, June 16, 2011
6:30 - 8 p.m.
Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserve
818 Kitts Hummock Road, Dover, DE 19901
The Delaware Environmental Observing System and the Delaware Geological Survey have recently developed a Coastal Flood Monitoring System for community leaders and first responders in Kent County, Delaware, and are offering a free training session on the use of this important tool at the Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserve.
The Coastal Flood Monitoring System notifies users of potential coastal flooding events in Kent County and serves as a resource for emergency management decision making prior to and during events. The Monitoring System can predict tide heights about five days in advance and warn responders of an impending flood event before it happens. The DEOS website also provides forecasts, maps to show inundated areas, and cross-sections of evacuation routes so that people will know how deep water will likely be on the roads.
Individuals that would be deployed during a coastal flood event in Kent County and could benefit from the use of the Monitoring System are invited to participate in this essential training.
Registration for the training is free of charge, but required. Please follow the link below to register yourself and your colleagues for this important event.
