"This Week's Jersey Floods Are A Taste Of What's To Come"

"Every year or two, the Jersey Shore tends to get flooding as severe as this week.

But by midcentury, the Shore should expect floods this bad every month, on average, according to projections summarized in a new U.S. government report.

The reason is rising sea levels, caused by a combination of sinking land and human-induced warmer temperatures, said the report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration."
