Hurricane Presentation

Dennis Krohn and Jason Greenwood visited a meeting of the Greater Pinellas Point Homeowners Association, by invitation of a board member, to discuss hurricanes and their damage potential for Pinellas Point. They started with a video clip from the TV program "Beyond Science," broadcast by PBS affiliate WUSF TV, Tampa. The episode was titled "Hurricane Season" and features Abby Sallenger, Dennis Krohn, and Karen Morgan, who are members of the USGS Hurricane and Extreme Storm Response Team.

The approaching hurricane season proved to be a helpful draw for this community outreach effort and resulted in a higher than normal turnout. Approximately 50 people attended and were obviously receptive to the program. After the video was shown, the audience asked many thoughtful questions for more than 30 minutes and gave the USGS a lot of positive feedback for the presentation. Future plans call for Bill Loeb to talk to them about historical aspects of hurricanes that have hit Pinellas County.
