Study Suggests Future Not so Bright for Seacoast, New Hampshire
There are several communities throughout the seacoast of New Hampshire including Seabrook, Hampton and Rye that could quite possibly see massive flooding problems in the future.
According a seacoast online article, the Union of Concerned Scientists released a report that says there are sea-level rise dangers for some 2,000 properties along multiple seacoast communities.
According to the study, by the year 2045, some two-thousand residential properties are at risk of chronic inundation. The report cites accelerating sea level rise, driven by climate change. The number of at-risk properties increases to somewhere near 5,000 by the year 2100.
The report says by the year 2045, some 1,500 homes in Hampton are at risk of chronic inundation. That's roughly 20 percent of all homes in that town. Rye is also heavily affected. This, according to UCS.
