NOAA experts to summarize 2018 high tide flooding in the U.S., provide 2019 outlook
On July 10, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will release its 2018 State of High Tide Flooding and 2019 Outlook for the U.S.. The study tracks changes in coastal high tide flooding from May 2018 to April 2019, and provides projections for next year using national flooding thresholds at 98 NOAA tide gauges around the U.S.
High tide flooding, sometimes referred to as nuisance flooding, is coastal flooding that leads to public inconveniences such as road closures. It is becoming increasingly common as sea levels rise. NOAA has released an outlook on coastal high tide flooding every year since 2014.
