NYT: Rising Sea Levels May Disrupt Lives of Millions, Study Says
March 14: Sea-level rise, a problem exacerbated by greenhouse gas emissions, could disrupt the lives of more than 13 million people in the United States, three times the most current estimates, according to a study published in Nature Climate Change. Rising seas, which already endanger coastal communities through tidal floods and storm surges, could rise three feet or more over the next century if emissions continue at a high level, threatening many shoreline communities. The study argues that most projections vastly underestimate the number of people at risk because they do not account for population growth. For the study, the authors combined future population estimates with predicted sea-level rise, using data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, to demonstrate that millions are at risk: 4.2 million if seas rise by three feet, or 13.1 million with a six-foot increase, a high-end estimate.

Sandy-damaged Properties for Auction on Staten Island, Bids Starting at $14,650

Now, the governor's office will auction the damaged Staten Island properties-along with six in Queens and one in Brooklyn-on May 10 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Bloomfield, Staten Island. The properties to be auctioned were acquired by those homeowners who chose not to participate in the NYC Build it Back program. The storm-damaged Staten Island properties, which are among 115 statewide, have been acquired from interested homeowners via the Housing Trust Fund Corporation, in connection with Governor's Office of Storm Recovery NY Rising Acquisition-for-Redevelopment Program.

What NYC Would Look Like If Sea Levels Rose Just 20 Feet
The Surging Seas map created by Climate Central renders what would occur if global temperatures rose by approximately two degrees, which would raise the sea levels by about twenty feet. Bjarke Ingels, the famed architect slated with the job of designing the World Trade Center's final skyscraper, has a project in the works that will protect the "Dry Line, " a ten-mile area in lower Manhattan, which include reconfiguring park spaces and installing deployable walls. A lot of organizations are also at work through the Rebuild by Design competition put on by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, New York City's Vision 2020 plan, and the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance.

September 11th Victim Compensation Fund - Fourth Annual Status Report
The Victim Compensation Fund's (VCF) fourth Annual Status Report includes an update on the status of all claims processed by the VCF and highlights the substantial efforts of the team in rendering nearly 6,000 compensation determinations in 2015.

The determination of Congress to reauthorize the VCF recognizes the importance of the Fund's ongoing work for the 9/11 community, the success of their efforts to-date, and the great need to continue to provide compensation to those who suffered physically and financially as a result of the September 11th terrorist attacks and debris removal.

One World Trade Center Landlord Blocked Charity Stair Climb That Honors 9/11 Victims
March 13: In full gear, 343 firefighters from 29 states and four countries climbed a World Trade Center tower to honor firefighters killed on 9/11. The New York City Firefighter Stair Climb memorial charity fundraiser-founded by two NYC firefighters-was formerly blocked by the building's landlords, the Durst Organization. The head of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, which sponsors the stair climb, believed One World Trade's landlord was trying to camouflage the 9/11 connection in order to lease more space. "They want to get so far away from what happened on 9/11, that last year they didn't even want us to have pictures of firefighters or police officers that died. I mean, come on, this building is so symbolic," Frank Siller told CBS2. The stair climb to honor 9/11 first responders and their families was a huge success last year as nearly 1,000 people climbed 90 stories at One World Trade Center to raise money to build hi-tech homes for soldiers injured in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Gotham Gazette: Bill Mandates Board of Elections Emergency Plan
March 9: NY City Council Member Mark Treyger will introduce a bill to ensure that the Board of Elections, which administers voting in the city, joins other agencies in formulating its own disaster-preparedness procedures for conducting the polls. "We have to make sure that democracy perseveres through a crisis," Treyger told Gotham Gazette. The Council member represents parts of southern Brooklyn that were hit hard by Superstorm Sandy in 2012, just a week before Election Day. Treyger's experience with the storm and his role as chair of the Council's Committee on Recovery and Resiliency give him a unique perspective on the issue. "Every agency, NYCHA or DOE, are all in the process of updating their emergency response plans," Treyger said. "I'm curious to know what the BOE has done to better respond to emergencies post-Superstorm Sandy and what level of coordination exists between the City and the State." Treyger's bill would mandate that the BOE be prepared for extreme situations by working with NYC Emergency Management to create a reasonable plan to conduct an election amid a crisis. Read more.

Congressman Donovan Supports Restoring New York's Federal Anti-Terror Funding
March 3: Congressman Dan Donovan (R-Staten Island-Bay Ridge) is engaged in a fierce battle with the Obama Administration over a provision in the 2017 budget proposal calling for slashing $180 million from the $580 million out of last year's budget for the Urban Areas Security Initiative (UASI). Begun in 2006, UASI provides training and equipment for police and fire departments and other first responder units of the 28 American cities considered by intelligence agencies to be among the prime targets of terrorists. Of those 28 cities, New York is threatened with the deepest cuts, losing $90 million from the $180 million it received in 2015. Donovan, who was recently named chair of the subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness Response and Communications says he finds it "inconceivable that the President is taking away funds from New York and the other designated at-risk cities for a program created to help prevent terrorist attacks."

Active Shooter Incident Preparedness
There are a multitude of resources available to help prompt discussion on how to increase safety at houses of worship and address the potential for copycat threats. Resources:


Flood Preparedness
Floods can have a major impact on homes, communities, and regions and can develop over a period of days or occur suddenly. SAMHSA DTAC has compiled a list of tools and resources focused on flood preparedness and response:
  • Disaster-Specific Resources-Flood
    • This SAMHSA DTAC Disaster Behavioral Health Information Series (DBHIS) installment provides preparedness and response information for floods. Materials include tip sheets, podcasts, and links to helpful agencies. To access this installment, please visit the  website.
  • Stay Safe Before, During, and After a Flood
    • One way that individuals and families can prepare for a flood is to develop their own response and communication plan. The Public Health Emergency website contains materials that can help. Links to these resources are available on the website.  
  • Floods
    • This Federal Emergency Management Agency Ready.gov webpage includes flood-specific preparedness, response, and recovery information. There is also a special section highlighting tools and resources for spring flooding. Visit the website to learn more.
  • Strengthening Your Emotional Well-Being Ahead of the Flood
    • Individuals may experience distress when anticipating and preparing for a flood. This American Psychological Association article offers tips to manage flood-related anxiety and improve overall physical and behavioral health. Access the article here.

Zika Virus Preparedness
Zika virus is spread to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito (A. aegypti and A. albopictus). To date, Zika has not been spread by mosquitoes in the continental United States. However, lab tests have confirmed Zika virus in travelers returning to the United States. These travelers have gotten the virus from mosquito bites and a few through sex. With the recent outbreaks in the Americas, the number of Zika cases among travelers visiting or returning to the United States will likely increase. CDC is not able to predict how much Zika virus would spread in the continental United States. Many areas in the United States have the type of mosquitoes that can become infected with and spread Zika virus. However, recent outbreaks in the continental United States of chikungunya and dengue, which are spread by the same type of mosquito, have been relatively small and limited to a small area. Resources:
Tanenbaum: Resources for Combating Extremism
The Tanenbaum Center for Interreligious Understanding is offering free, practical resources that can be used at home or at work, in schools, places of worship and in your community, including a September 11 Fact Sheet and World Religions Fact Sheet. The resources can be utilized for discussion at houses of worship, community centers, at the workplace, or at home with friends and family to help learn the facts and counter hate and terror.
