Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico: Why They are Stronger and How to be Ready

Welcome to Houston! Climate-fueled hurricanes are in your future, how should you prepare? Join Dr. Sylvia Dee, Rice Climate Scientist, and Dr. Lizzie Wallace, Rice Postdoctoral Fellow, virtually to hear about why and how climate change is producing more powerful hurricanes. Jerusha Kasch, Rice's Director of Institutional Crisis Management, will provide details about preparing for hurricanes.
