Findings Related to 2011 Lake Hiawatha Flooding

The Environmental Advisory Committee (EAC) would like to express its condolences to the citizens of Lake Hiawatha who were affected by the storm. We have stated here that the conditions for flooding were a synergistic effects of many factors, very little of which was controllable at the time. From North Carolina to Vermont, millions of people were affected by Hurricane Irene. We can look back, learn from what we have experienced and make tomorrow a better day.
