      The future will be very different than the past.
      As the only species of animal capable of foresight it seems wise to use all tools available to understand how to cope with emerging trends.
      I have examined this problem historical data is not as relevant as predictive indices of sea rise land subsidence and meteorologic data.

    I had no idea the Midwest had ocean-front property. From the article:

    The group says the Midwest flooding again “highlights the need for complete, up-to-date, publicly available flood risk data that takes rising sea levels and increasing atmospheric and sea surface temperatures into account.”

    HA HA HA HA HA! The Midwest was flooded by rising sea levels!

      Craig, much of what is now America was under water millions of years ago. Great Lakes were formed by retreating Glaciers. Man was not yet on the earth. Wonder how we had all that Global Warming?????

    Define ‘scientists’. Are they distinct in any way from ‘climate scientists’?

    You can already see your flood risk for free at Plus the FEMA data won’t tell you the risk of a specific property – it’s aggregated at the tract level. Still nice to have, though.
