Abstract

[First paragraph]

If we believe scholars Johndan Johnson-Eilola and Stuart A. Seiber, technical communication is all about solving problems. Well, I currently have a problem: The city I now call home is prone to flooding. And everyone who lives here knows it, but isn't quite sure what to do about it. Ranked second behind New Orleans, LA, in United States cities susceptible to sea level rise (Montgomery 2014), our historical, naval-base dominated locale of Norfolk, VA-lucky as we've been without a major hurricane since 1933-is quite vulnerable, due in no small part to overwhelmed drainage systems, ground subsistence, and the rivers that meander so beautifully, but so piercingly, through the heart of our city.
