In January 2022, waves crashed over our sea wall during a nor’easter and caused extensive damage to the seawall protecting our historic site. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting an above-average hurricane season for 2022. As storms increase in frequency and intensity, The Gables is at high risk for flooding and wind damage.
On October 26, 2020, Kirk Bosma of Woods Hole Group gave a presentation sponsored by Salem Sound Coastwatch and the National Park Service focusing on flooding in Salem. Mapping Future Flood Risk and Prioritizing Coastal Resilience for Salem is available to view online. Bosma explains how the Woods Hole Group created their storm and flooding models, and what they mean for Salem’s residents, businesses, and infrastructure.
