The 100 Year Flood


Every year there’s a 1% chance that a crazy storm like the one on January 4th, 2018 could happen. Seems small, but it’s not! And climate change is only increasing the frequency with which that 1% storm does in fact happen each year. A little scary!!

Gabriela Boscio (Climate Program Manager) and Melinda Vega  (Community Engagement Coordinator), both of Neighborhood of Affordable Housing, Inc. (NOAH) drop by What’s up Eastie? to share their experiences during the superstorm as East Boston and Chelsea residents. Later in the show, we’re joined by Mia Mansfield (Program Manager, Climate Ready Boston) to talk about future weather events and storm preparedness.

Hey Listeners! Did you know 311 is more than a complaint line?!?!

You can use 311 to report storm conditions like flooding, request more trees on your street, or just ask a question! You can even send pictures! If you don’t know which city department is best to reach out to, DIAL 311, and they’ll get your info to the right people.
