New Hampshire hosts summit on coastal flooding

The Associated Press

HAMPTON — Mayors and other elected officials from 18 states are gathering in New Hampshire for a bipartisan summit on coastal flooding.

The Rising Tides summit in Hampton on Saturday will bring together officials representing a total of 95,000 miles of coastline, including some who are just starting to evaluate the risks flooding poses to infrastructure, homes and the economy and others who have done years of analysis. The group is calling for increased state and federal support for such planning, and urging presidential candidates to address the issue.

Portsmouth Mayor Robert Lister, a Democrat, and Republican state Sen. Nancy Stiles of Hampton say coastal flooding is too important of an issue to be ignored by our most important leaders.
