A recent study by the website 24/7 Wall Street listed New Jersey as one of 35 American cities that will be largely uninhabitable due to flooding within the next century.
The website reviewed data modeled by environmental watchdog group the Union of Concerned Scientists, which published a troubling climate change report in June 2018.
According to their research,19 percent of Secaucus homes will be at risk of flooding by 2060. That number will rise to 34 percent by the year 2100. More than a quarter of Secaucus’ habitable land will be underwater by 2060 and more than 65 percent by 2100.
Other New Jersey towns at risk include Hoboken, Atlantic City, Ocean City, Brigantine, Ventnor City, Little Ferry and Pennsville.
