ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A conservation group has launched an interactive map that allows users to see where high tides could eventually reach along the Hudson River from Yonkers to Troy.
Scenic Hudson's "adaptation tool box" offers an interactive map for visualizing where future high tides and flood zones could reach. The website also features links to resources for shoreline adaptation and scientific data.
The 150 miles of Hudson River between New York Harbor and Troy is an estuary in sync with the ocean's tides. If severe weather events like Superstorm Sandy become more common and ocean levels rise, land along that tidal stretch of river will be vulnerable, too.
