Residents of New Orleans are at the highest risk of flooding throughout the nation with 98% of properties at risk for damages. The city is surrounded by water with only half the city above sea level. The system of levees built along the Mississippi River protects from flooding only from a 100-year event, if not improved, flooding in New Orleans will continue to impact the city. Sea levels are expected to continually increase adding an extreme risk of flooding to coastal cities such as New Orleans.
If you live in New Orleans, your flood map and risk of flooding may be underestimated based upon outdated analysis and false reliability of the levee system. “Louisiana’s lower numbers today are the result of flood maps not being updated to take into account the protection provided by levees and other projects built since the maps were last published”, said Mike Amodeo, director of data science with First Street.
