A new analysis reveals there are some 14.6 million US properties at risk of flooding, which is 70 percent higher than the Federal Emergency Agency (FEMA) estimates. FEMA maps only account for coastal flooding and leaves out rivers and the way climate change has increased storms, which has led many to believe there is an underestimated flood risk across the nation. The new calculations were released by First Street Foundation, which created a flood model using data of sea-level rise, rainfall and flooding in smaller creeks. First Street shows major cities such as Los Angeles and New York City at the top of the list, with the California city having 595,500 properties at risk and the east coast hub with 998,600. However, FEMA’s maps appear to greatly underestimate the homes in danger zones – it shows Los Angeles with just 495,400 properties at risk and New York with 239,000. The latest analysis also warns that the total number of properties could increase to 16.2 million by 2050 due to factors associated with climate change.
