Hundreds of hospitals on Atlantic and Gulf coasts at risk of flooding from hurricanes

A new study systematically investigates flooding risk to hospitals on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts from Category 1-4 storms and finds that even relatively weak storms pose a serious flood risk to hospitals along the coast. Sea level rise expected in this century due to the effects of climate change increases the odds of hospital flooding by 22% according to a study.A new study systematically investigates flooding risk to hospitals on the Atlantic and Gulf Coasts from Category 1-4 storms and finds that even relatively weak storms pose a serious flood risk to hospitals along the coast.
