New York City has filed a groundbreaking flood map appeal, specifically highlighting the errors with the “Methodology” behind the science of FEMA’s flood mapping program. This is occurring in every community across the country.
Here are actual quotes/conclusions from the flood map appeal.
FEMA’s Base Flood Elevations (BFE) are wrong, too high, between 1.1 feet and 2.1 feet across NY and NJ coastline
Storm data was removed because it did not “”reveal good agreement” with the rest of FEMA’s conclusion.
“methodology is deficient”, “mathematical errors”, “accuracy sacrificed for standardization”
FEMA “underestimated”, “did not take into account” and “assumptions” caused the maps to be wrong.
“Methodology incorrect” and “Insufficient and Poor Quality Data”
