In early spring, several forecast groups or organizations issue forecasts about activity in forthcoming Atlantic hurricane season. This year many of them hinted at a "slightly above" to "above" average season.
Thanks to a UGA team, university researchers and Athens residents can now take a virtual walk through the city’s changing physical landscape via the “Layers of Time” story map (link), built from historical material capturing the Old Athens Cemetery, Oconee Hill Cemetery, the UGA campus and th
