Va. Group Releasing Plans to Combat Rising Sea Levels

NORFOLK, Va. — The Chesapeake Climate Action Network is preparing to release a report in Norfolk on how to adapt to rising sea levels.

The group will release its recommendations on Wednesday.

The report will detail the effects of sea level rise on the military, businesses and residents in the Hampton Roads region of the state.

The group says its study will include a 10-point plan on how Virginia can meet new Environmental Protection Agency carbon emission reduction goals while generating funds for coastal adaptation.
