Hurricane Hilary is rapidly intensifying, could bring significant flooding to Southern California, Southwest
Arizona, and Western New Mexico
Hurricane Hilary is not a real hurricane and is not projected to affect any area. However, due to climate change-induced sea level rise, hurricanes can bring greater impacts of coastal flooding to areas like those mentioned. Consequently, it is important for these states and cities to have adequate flood protection strategies in place, such as building better levees, relocating people in vulnerable areas, and enforcing proper coastal development regulations. Additionally, it is important to consider the effects of climate change on our communities, and develop proactive strategies to address the changing environment.
