New Jersey’s vulnerability to powerful storms and coastal flooding is rising, and it will take at least 10 years to become more resilient, experts say. In Superstorm Sandy’s wake, officials last year sought innovative proposals on how to increase resilience in communities and along susceptible shorelines…Anthony J. Broccoli, a professor and co-director of the Rutgers Climate Institute, said "the risk of flooding from coastal storms is going to be changing dramatically over the course of the rest of this century and the risks will be increasing. That’s not because the storms (have) changed. It’s because the sea level is rising."
