Flooding in Ocean City, New Jersey
Flooding is not a natural disaster. It's a natural event that becomes a disaster for people who live in flood zones or in floodplains. As sea levels rise, flooding is becoming worse even during non-major storm events. properties are at greater risk of flood damage, as well as roads, bridges, public buildings and utilities.
In Sea Bright, New Jersey, the storm had sent up 17 inches of ocean water flooding onto Church Street.
