Beach Towns That Will Soon Be Under Water


To identify the beach towns that will soon be under water, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed ZIP-code level data on the value of property and the number of homes threatened by rising sea levels in 2060, which was then aggregated to the level of city and town. ZIP-code level data came from the Union of Concerned Scientists report “Underwater: Rising Seas, Chronic Floods, and the Implications for US Coastal Real Estate,” published in 2018.
