Scott Prinos has worked for the U.S. Geological Survey in Illinois and Florida for 17 years.

He will speak about current USGS efforts to monitor floods and storm surges.
ROOM 1123 (Training Room), Campus Support Complex (CSC) building, immediately EAST of the National Weather Service building at FIU's main campus (NWS address 11691 SW 17th Street, Miami, 33165). Because of Dolly's forecast landfall Wednesday near South Texas/NE Mexico, parking for attendees at the AMS/Miami chapter meeting will be in the "North Forty", the grassy field just NORTH of the NWS upper air inflation shelter, and attendees will walk across the street (Blue Avenue) to the CSC building, through the atrium area to CSC 1123 room. Please do NOT park in the FIU parking lot, you WILL get a ticket. If anyone gets lost, come to the front of the NWS building and the guard will direct you.
