Our students from Booker T. Washington did an outstanding job mapping the flood waters around Norfolk.  We created over 1200 mapping events as student (citizen) scientist providing data to the overall scientific community to study rising sea level.  Norfolk is particularly prone to flooding with many areas at or below sea level. We discussed the cause of sea level rise as well as why the tides were "King" today.  Moon phases and spring/neap tides are the lessons being taught in our Earth Science class.  Here are the trouble spots BTW visited:
