Since Superstorm Sandy ravaged Long Island and the east coast almost three years ago, it’s more important than ever to assess our preparedness for another storm. Tonight at 7pm, a panel will discuss exactly that at Hofstra University. “Are We Prepared for the Next Hurricane?” will feature several experts, including Adam Sobel. Sobel is a professor at Columbia University as well as the author of the book “Storm Surge: Hurricane Sandy, Our Changing Climate, and Extreme Weather of the Past and Future.” He breaks down the impact of climate change on the probability of another hurricane.
