The SLSC is inviting community members to participate in flood reporting (via the Eyes on the Rise app) at different locations around Miami. Participants will be given “citizen science kits” and provided with instructions on how to collect useful data by taking simple measurements of flooding. We will then reconvene at the venue (Vizcaya Village & Garage) to view the results of their work on a projected map.
