The UH Manoa community will have a chance to examine the causes and effects of the disastrous flood that swept through the campus on October 30, 2004, at a symposium scheduled for Monday afternoon, February 28.

The symposium will include presentations and discussions with representatives of the National Weather Service, the U.S. Geological Survey, the State Department of Land and Natural Resources, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and UH scientists who examine the conditions that led to the severe flooding.

A panel discussion will follow, with UH administrators and department representatives from the most critically affected facilities on campus. They will discuss the response to flooding and how the risk of such damage in the future might be reduced.
