Don Tran with NDT-TV in New York City interviews Levees.org founder Sandy Rosenthal about the arrival of Hurricane Delta in Cameron Parish Louisiana which occurred just six weeks after Hurricane Laura struck the same region.
Unbelievable. A Category 4 storm, with winds currently at 140 mph is headed toward the Louisiana coast.
Forecasters say Hurricane Delta could strengthen even more before it makes landfall. And will strike “as a major hurricane of at least at Category 3” early Saturday morning.
Just as dangerous as wind is the storm surge which will affect New Orleans.
On October 9, 2020, the Christian Regenhard Center for Emergency Response Studies (RaCERS) will kick off its Fall Seminar Series by featuring founder Sandy Rosenthal and her new book, Words Whispered in Water: Why the Levees Broke in Hurricane Katrina.
RaCERS is a unique applied research center focused on lessons learned and planning for large-scale incidents. It is housed at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice (CUNY).
Rosenthal will discuss the relevance of her book for disaster researchers and emergency managers with Professor Glenn Corbett, former member of the Federal Advisory Committee of the National Construction Safety Team.
The event is free and open to the public, but you must register here.
