Richard Street area of Red Hook with Revised 2013 Hurricane Zones
In the map below, I brought in the revised New York City Hurricane Zones map for 2013. This new map calculates the risk of flooding from many factors besides elevation, for example, wind speed, wave height and surface texture and so on. The higher the alphabetic letter, lesser the risk of flooding. The zones shown indicate that more residents are now in increased risk of flooding. Concerning the map, the other layers of the map were used in an earlier posting and I simply brought in the new shape file dealing with flooding.
