an extreme weather event from the past and provided details of the event, its historical context, and its societal impacts.

In your first two written assignments you researched an extreme weather event from the past and provided details of the event, its historical context, and its societal impacts. For your final assignment you will think about this same weather event in the context of climate change. In particular: Was the event impacted or altered by climate change? How may a similar event change in the future? Is it thought to become more or less common? Would it change in intensity or duration? Could it potentially impact a different or larger region? Are there other aspects of climate change that may enhance the impact of the event? Provide some suggestions for how society could be better prepared to deal with such a climate change altered event in the future. Are infrastructure changes required? Would public outreach or education programs be needed? Would government regulations or restrictions help mitigate impacts of a future event? I submitted the first two portions as an attachment to show what has been wrote about previously on the topic.
