2019 State of U.S. High Tide Flooding with a 2020 Outlook


In this report, the NOAA provides data illustrating the rapid growth in coastal flood risk now occurring within many U.S. coastal communities. Flooding, once a consequence of severe storms, can now occur during a full-moon tide or with a change in prevailing winds or currents. Such high tide flooding (HTF) is becoming common and is of growing concern within U.S. coastal communities.

We thank the NOAA for sharing this data rich report with our audience.
