NYC Projected Flood Zones in NPCC2 report

Potential areas that could be impacted by the 100-year flood in the 2020s, 2050s, 2080s, and 2100 based on projections of the high-estimate 90th percentile NPCC2 sea level rise scenario. Map developed using the static approach. Note: This map is subject to limitations in accuracy as a result of the quantitative models, data sets, and methodology used in its development. The map and data should not be used to assess actual coastal hazards, insurance requirements, or property values or be used in lieu of FIRMS issued by FEMA. The flood areas delineated in no way represent precise flood boundaries but rather illustrate three distinct areas of interest: (1) areas currently subject to the 100-year flood that will continue to be subject to flooding in the future; (2) areas that do not currently flood but are expected to potentially experience the 100-year flood in the future; and (3) areas that do not currently flood and are unlikely to do so in the timeline of the climate scenarios used in this research (end of the current century)
