Weathering Future Floods: A Community Rating System Workshop was held Jan. 23, 2014, at 5 Rivers Delta Resource Center in Spanish Fort, Ala. Representatives from more than a dozen communities, insurance agents and others meet to discuss the Community Rating System, a program of the National Flood Insurance Program, which encourages communities to become more resilient while allowing for discounts on flood insurance rates. The workshop was organized by Weeks Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, the Alabama Association of State Floodplain Managers, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Coastal Services Center, Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant and the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Legal Program.
