New tool to estimate your home's potential flood damage

"Coastal property owners in Rhode Island have a new tool to help plan for the impacts of climate change. The state Coastal Resources Management Council and the University of Rhode Island have released a smartphone app that allows property owners to estimate the amount of flood damage to their homes and businesses caused by a major storm. The free StormTools app allows users to quantify how sea-level increases in coming decades could ramp up damage and in turn calculate the amount of protection that could be offered by raising structures above floodwaters."- Excerpt from the Providence Journal
