The North End Waterfront and Sea Level Rise in Boston Harbor [Video Presentation]


The Boston Harbor Association gave an updated presentation to the North End community with their latest information and outlook regarding the rising tide in Boston Harbor and its potential flooding impacts on neighborhood residents, businesses and property owners.

Most recently, a new preliminary flood zone map was issued by FEMA that includes much of the North End and Downtown Boston. The FEMA maps align closely with those previously published by TBHA in its report, Preparing for the Rising Tide. The flood lines account for sea level rise in combination with storms such as Hurricane Sandy today and over the coming decades.

The video features Julie Wormser, TBHA’s Executive Director, presenting on December 12, 2013 to the North End / Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA). More information can be found at the TBHA website.
