Flood effects can be local, impacting a neighbor- hood or community, or very large, affecting entire river basins and multiple states. FEMA Region III encourages citizens in Virginia, West Vir- ginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland and the District of Columbia to know their flood hazards. National Flood Safety Awareness Week (March 14-18) is intended to highlight some of the many ways floods can occur, the hazards associated with floods, and what you can do to save lives and preserve property. To help individuals better un- derstand flood risks nationwide as well as empower them to take steps that mitigate damaging floods, FEMA has created a one- stop flood awareness information tool available at ness. This flood fact-focused site contains valuable tips on what to do before, during and after a flood, and encourages flood insurance protection among other measures. "It's incumbent upon families and businesses to act now, plan ahead and prepare for flooding events that can potentially affect their communities," said FEMA Region III Administrator Mary Ann Tierney. Floods do more than damage properties; they can also threaten lives if careful safety precautions are not followed. Therefore, know your community's flood risk, flood history and overall community action plan to address flooding events before, during and after they occur. "Develop a strong family emergency plan and reach out to your community's best flood planning resource-the local emer- gency management office. This approach is a great way to protect your family and property while learning, lending input, and assisting your first responders," said Tierney.

Dante Lives On King photography receives recognition prestigious museum King College photography student Adam Holsinger was awarded an Undergraduate Fel- lowship from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA). With a collection of art that spans the globe and more than 5,000 years, the VMFA is re- cognized as one of the top comprehensive art museums in the United States. VMFA's Fellowship Program has awarded more than $4.4 million and 1,147 awards to students and professional artists. To celebrate the museums 75 m anniversary, the Fellowship Pro- gram received a 25% increase in funding. A record 642 applicants submitted works. Holsinger was one of only 14 undergraduates from all artistic disciplines to be chosen, and the only student south of Richmond so honored. "Having my work recognized by the VMFA as deserving of such esteemed acknowledge- ment is as momentous as it is motivating," said Holsinger. This award is one of several recent "prestigious ecognitions of Holsinger's photographic tal- ents. His photo of Kyle Busch winning the Bristol Motor Speedway's (BMS) August 2010 NASCAR Trucks Race was selected to hang in the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte,. NC for four months along with two photos of his other two wins that same weekend. A night shot of Bristol Motor Speedway, taken by Holsinger, is also on per- manent display at the track's new communications center. "The opportunity to take photographs at BMS was amaz- ing," said Holsinger. "I love the excitement and challenge that shooting a live sports event brings, especially one that is not I student from Adam Holsinger only a national event, but an in- ternational one as well. Another of. my local favorites to photo- graph is Bristol's Rhythm and Roots Reunion." Ten years ago after he picked up a friend's digital camera, Holsinger quickly became capti- vated with the artistic medium. Within just a few months, he was doing his first photo shoots. "One of my other passions is writing," said Holsinger. "In- corporating writing along with photography has made for a harmonious creative journey." "We are grateful to have someone of Adam's talent here at King College," said Chris Stewart, director of photography for King College. "Photography is all about making powerful images that communicate. Adam is quite successful at telling a story through his art. We are thrilled that he is being re- cognized for his outstanding artistic work."
