The risk of flooding has increased in most coastal regions of the US since 1900 and that risk is projected to grow. In coastal areas, storm surge happens when strong winds over the ocean drive water onshore and possibly several miles inland. Heavy rains can happen throughout the year, causing flooded streams, ponds, backed-up storm drains, and saturated ground. A flash flood is a rapid flooding of low-lying areas in less than 6 hours, which can tear out trees, destroy buildings, roadways and bridges.
