NJ Health and Medical Lifelines Flood Exposure Analysis

Community Lifelines are networks of assets and services that communities use to support their day-to-day needs. When stable, lifelines enable all other aspects of society to function. When disrupted – for example, by a hurricane or nor’easter – they require decisive intervention to resume operations.

This storymap (below), created by graduate student and Climate Corps member Tracy Glova, uses data from the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services, to examine New Jersey’s Health and Medical Lifelines for current and projected exposures to flooding.
