Tropical Cyclones on the Georgia Coast

SINERR PRESENTS THE SCIENCE OF TROPICAL CYCLONES ON THE GEORGIA COAST

 To coincide with the start of the 2019 Atlantic hurricane season, the Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve (SINERR) invites the public to join SINERR Manager Doug Samson, at the Sapelo Island Visitors Center on Friday, May 31st at 1 p.m. for an informational talk entitled The Science of Tropical Cyclones on the Georgia Coast. 

In his talk, Samson will present a graphical illustration of the history of tropical cyclones along the Georgia coast, generally, and in McIntosh County, specifically.  He will confirm that while Georgia is a refuge from hurricanes, it is not so from tropical cyclones. Additional topics will include the challenges of predicting where storms will form, how the impacts of individual storms can vary dramatically, and the kinds of tropical cyclones we can expect in Coastal Georgia in the future.  Samson will also share information on how individuals can access a wealth of hurricane-related information online.

Throughout the year, SINERR strives to offer educational programming that addresses the interests and needs of members of our coastal community, and a hurricane-related program fit perfectly into that mission. Samson says, “We realized that the analyses of the hurricane history of Sapelo Island that we completed for our new 5-Year Management Plan were also relevant to the Georgia coast, and therefore might be of interest to residents of McIntosh and other coastal counties. With memories of Matthew and Irma still fresh in our minds, and hurricane season starting June 1, it seemed like a good time to have a conversation about tropical cyclones in Georgia, past present and future.”

The presentation is free, open to the public and will last approximately one hour. For directions to the Sapelo Island Visitors Center, please call(912) 437-3224. For more information about the Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve, please visit www.sapelonerr.org.
