A new report from the nonprofit group First Street Foundation provides a rather bleak assessment of the dangers that thousands of properties across the country face from flooding in the coming decades. And if you are curious if your home faces flood dangers, the group has a new tool for you.
The tool from First Street allows users to input their property address and receive a flood risk score based on a variety of factors.
"The tool builds off of decades of peer-reviewed research and forecasts how flood risks will change over time due to changes in the environment," the First Street site states.
The report from the First Street Foundation concludes that DC has a smaller proportion of properties at substantial risk of flooding than the rest of the country, with 5.3% at substantial risk today and 5.8% at substantial risk in 2050.
