Flood iQ Adds New England States

ME, NH, MA, and RI residents can now search for their flood risks ______________________________________________________

We are excited to announce the completion of all New England coastal states on Flood iQ! Users from Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island can now search for their property or city’s flood risk on Flood iQ. These four new states join the seven existing coastal states on FloodiQ.com, including Connecticut.

With concerns for sea level rise and flooding in New England growing, this expansion for Flood iQ is timely. Flooding has gone up by 200–400% nationally in just the last 20 years and combined properties at risk from frequent tidal flooding in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island total over 1.7 million, with over $403.1 million in relative home values missed out on between 2005 and 2017.

We are excited to offer this much needed tool to help the communities of Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island find their flood risks. With resources like Flood iQ and SeaLevelRise.org, citizens will be better informed and equipped to take proactive steps to combat sea level rise and to advocate for action at the municipal and state level.

We will continue to add states to Flood iQ with the hopes of one day offering flood risk data to all coastal communities. Look out for our next expansion to Texas, which will complete our data availability for the entire Gulf Coast!
