The Bay Area includes half of the state's shoreline. Could the flooding we saw in New York and New Jersey happen in Northern California? We talk to Jeffrey Mount, professor of geology and founding director of the UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences, about natural disaster risk in the Bay Area and the lessons we can learn from Hurricane Sandy.

Host: Michael Krasny

Guests:

  • Jeffrey Mount, professor of geology, director emeritus and founding director of the Center for Watershed Sciences at UC Davis
