Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 01, 2016
We’ve all experienced extreme weather – just this week in fact—and scientists suggest extreme weather and climate events have increased in recent decades. NOAA predicts El Niño will have a big impact on weather and climate patterns this winter across the nation.
To learn more about this, join The Pew Charitable Trusts and experts from the National Guard, FEMA and NOAA for a discussion on trends in extreme weather over the past decade and the impact of more frequent and more complex weather events on national preparedness and how the United States responds to natural disasters. The event also will be live webcast.
