SET THE MOOD ☔️ + FIND YOUR RISK
NYC is a city of water, islands and peninsulas. A few hundred years ago your neighborhood was probably a marsh, a stream, or a pond. Now, stronger storms with more rain are hitting NYC more often, and those historical water features have revealed flood-prone areas. Inland neighborhoods can flood too, which more parts of the city are now experiencing.
Take 2 minutes and check your home’s risk of flooding using two tools (use:
☐ stormwater.nyc for inland stormwater flood risk
☐ floodhelpny.org or call 646-786-0888 for coastal flood risk
And, stormwater is always risky! NEVER go in floodwaters – they’re filled with chemicals and often sewage: a health hazard!
