This week marks the 5th anniversary of Hurricane Michael, which caused over $25 billion in damage to the Southeast, including several billion dollars in damage to agriculture. I will be one of three speakers on the American Meteorological Society’s retrospective webinar on Michael, to be held on Tuesday October 10 online at 7 pm EDT. The webinar is open to the public but you need to register. You can use the QR code on the image below or if you hate QR codes as much as I do, you can register at In my part of the talk, I will be discussing how Michael affected agriculture, mostly in Georgia but also in other states that were affected by the storm. I hope you will consider coming!
