CO-OPS Report on "Sea Level Rise and Nuisance Flood Frequency Changes around the United States"

An important new report on what we here in Tidewater Virginia call nuisance flooding. Here is link to the report. 

They nicely quantify the increasing nuisance flooding at many locations in the US including our favorite Sewells Point in Norfolk. Here  is one figure relevant to Hampton Roads.

I'll summarize their findings a week or so.
