Happy World Water Day! We explore how the increased flooding, drought, and heat from climate change are impacting our water supply.
Feb 20, 2019
Climate change is already fueling disasters and contributing to flooding, heat waves, wildfires, and the spread of disease, with worse impacts ahead.

Unchecked greenhouse gas emissions could hit some U.S. locations with up to three severe, nearly simultaneous climate hazards by 2050 — but moderate to deep emissions cuts could significantly reduce these dangers.

Sea level rise will threaten hundreds of thousands of homes in the coming decades — and many communities have built a striking number of new homes in the future flood zone.
Oct 4, 2018
Tidal flooding on the U.S. coast is getting more common, and the number of days with flooding will substantially increase in the coming decades. As the highest astronomical tides of the year approach, the coming weeks will bring a glimpse into a more regularly flooded future for much of the U.S.

Climate change can lead to heavier rain from hurricanes and increased risk of coastal flooding due to storm surge.
Apr 26, 2017
NOAA published a series of new sea level rise scenarios in January. We analyze and visualize the unlikely but increasingly plausible extreme scenario and share scenes from up and down the U.S. coastline.

Sea level rise from human-caused climate change is increasing the frequency of coastal flooding. The rapid increase in the last 10 years is allowing annual king tides to reach farther inland.
Feb 23, 2016
A new Climate Central-led analysis looks at the human-caused influence on the number of coastal flood days across the U.S.

Using a traditional letter grade, the report identifies each state's level of preparedness for its climate change risks based on scientific analysis of current and future changes in threats and a review of each state’s policies and actions as compared to other states.
