Report: Climate change blamed for grim outlook on Jersey Shore flooding, federal report says

This article discusses a Federal report on how climate change is being blamed for grim outlook on Jersey Shore flooding.

The trend persists, and it’s not good for New Jersey: Coastal towns continue to see increased high-tide flooding, inundating streets and basements — the result of sea level rise, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said during a Wednesday teleconference.

In 2018, the number of high-tide flooding days tied the U.S. record set in 2015, according to NOAA’s fifth annual report on coastal high-tide flooding, also known as “nuisance” or “sunny day” flooding.
