Atmospheric scientists and researchers are gathering at the UAlbany campus on Monday.
They’re discussing how to tackle future weather emergencies in a conference called "Facing The Storm: Preparing For Increased Extreme Weather In Upstate New York."
The college cites a recent report from the American Meteorological Society, which calls New York State the most vulnerable location for the weather to affect the economy.
The forum is partially presented by UAlbany and the NYS Emergency Management Association and NYS Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services.
The keynote speaker is Paul Tonko. Another speaker is Colleen Fullford from the Schoharie County Emergency Management Office.
The conference is set to go from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
