I was just reading his latest report on sea-level rise in the mid-Atlantic.  Such a shame - RIP.

If you’re planning on rebuilding along the coast of NJ, here is a resource from FEMA…

Good to hear.

The data we’ve been collecting has been showing that beach-dune systems that have received replenishment did not have overwash and/or breaching. It was the velocity of water and waves as a result of Hurricane Sandy that caused the most destruction in areas that did not have an engineered beach.

Back-bay flooding is always going to be a problem, especially on the barrier islands, but if the structure is no longer on the foundation, then a homeowner has to rebuild as opposed to mitigating flood damages (which costs considerably less).

Friends,

This is the beach-dune susceptibility assessment report for Long Beach Island, completed in 2009 by the stockton crc for the NOAA Coastal Services Center. The model is based on year 2005-data, so the shore protection projects have not been taken into account. Also, we did not model the 100-year storm, since the model became meaningless when applying such a large magnitude event to the storm simulations (similar to Hurricane Sandy) - it was assumed that with the 100-year event, wide-scale overwash and breaching would occur (and complete dune failure). The 50-year storm maximum gives a good idea of where the most vulnerable areas are.

If you’re interested in maps displaying you’re beach-dune systems vulnerability,
Check out the PDF map plot for the 50-year event here:
