Study Finds New York City at Increased Threat of Tropical Cyclones and Coastal Flooding 1 October 2015

Study Finds New York City at Increased Threat of Tropical Cyclones and Coastal Flooding

A cross CPO-funded study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences presents evidence of a dramatic increase in the frequency of large flooding events in New York City due to sea level rise and the size and intensity of tropical storms.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
