NY Harbor, NY: 72in. Sea Level Rise, 50yr. Storm Return
NY Harbor, NY
This animation displays 72 inches of sea level rise and a 50 year storm return period. Flooding along the Lower Hudson River estuary (e.g. Rockland, Westchester, New York City) are caused by offshore wind-blown storm surge and arise predominantly due to cool-season storms for lower floods and due to hurricanes for extreme floods.
