Produced by the Union of Concerned Scientists, this series of maps identifies the number of US homes at risk from chronic flooding over the coming decades due to sea level rise for every coastal Congressional district in the Lower 48 states. Chronic flooding is defined as high-tide flooding that occurs 26 or more times per year. Data displayed in this story map is drawn from the analyses Underwater: Rising Seas, Chronic Floods, and the Implications for US Coastal Real Estate (2018) and When Rising Seas Hit Home: Hard Choices Ahead for Hundreds of US Coastal Communities (2017).
Coastal communities, homeowners, and congressional representatives.
