Description:  As Hurricane Ian slammed into the southwestern Florida coast this week, the storm served as a stark reminder of the significant impacts weather and climate have on the built environment.  In 2012, Hurricane Sandy brought nearly $70 billion in infrastructure impacts.  Flooding, storm surge, temperature and wind loads on buildings, air quality along transportation corridors, environmental impacts to communications infrastructure, and so much more have trillions of dollars of impacts every year on the built environment.  In addition to looking at standard weather and climate effects, the industry must leverage future climate model projections so our infrastructure can outlast the changing climate decades into the future.   LISTEN HERE
