New Orleans holds a key place in weather history for many reasons. Because of this — and of course because NOLA has hosted our annual meeting in the past and will host us again — it has a special meaning for all AMS members.
Regrettably the pandemic prevented us from being together in New Orleans this year as we had planned. However, we want to use this final session of our virtual meeting to connect the science we have shared over the last week to the real-world experience of the people and institutions in this unique and storied place.
New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell will tie together our themes for the week. She’ll be supported by the city’s Chief Resilience Officer David Morris and Homeland Security and Public Engagement Manager Laura A. Mellem. Together they will touch upon:
LaToya Cantrell, New Orleans Mayor
Laura A. Mellem, Public Engagement Manager, NOLA Ready
David Morris, Acting Chief Resiliency Officer, City of New Orleans
Michael Lowry, FEMA Region 4
