3.1.23 Flood Watchers

Excerpted from the UCI News 

By Jim Washburn

California Assemblywoman Cottie Petrie-Norris, whose 74th District includes beach cities Huntington, Newport and Laguna, as well as Irvine, says, ‘The paper shows just how urgent and immediate this threat can be. For a long time, when we talked about flood risks and sea level rise, people acted like it was 100 years away. The reality is that it’s here, it’s now, it’s urgent, and the state of California’s response needs to reflect that urgency.'
