“Missouri Floods, Preventable Devastation”
Webinar at 7 pm CT, Wed, Sept 14, 2022

Were you or someone you know hit by the St. Louis area flood of July 26, 2022? Flood frequency and associated damages in Missouri are increasing. New developments aggravate flooding and place additional infrastructure in harm’s way. Dr. Robert Criss will discuss the causes of increasing risk, with special focus on the recurrent flash flooding of the River des Peres. He will cover historical changes to the River des Peres channel, regional developments, the flood record, and the new methods for inundation mapping and flood warning. Dr Criss will offer recommendations for homeowners as well as for city, state and federal governments. Audience participation is welcome.
