New York Passed Flood Risk Disclosure for Homebuyers (Jun. 9, 2023)
New York, NY—Climate change is no longer an abstract threat for New York residents. Coastal flooding (i.e., tropical storms, hurricanes, nor’easters, sea level rise, and storm surge), and stormwater flooding (i.e., more frequent), and intense precipitation events are hitting New York hard. Across the state, disaster declarations due to flooding have been declared in every county in the past 10 years alone. Flooding is the most common climate-related hazard in New York.
