New Hampshire City Leads Fight Against Inland Flooding

by Wochit 0:49 mins

When the rain comes down heavy in Keene, New Hampshire, auto mechanic Tom Stevens knows what to do: Drive the cars to the top of the hill near his garage and get everything else up onto shelves before floodwater starts seeping up through the floor drains. Variations of this drill are second nature to many residents of a city that has dealt repeatedly with the Ashuelot River and Beaver Brook overflowing their banks, bringing three floods considered to be 100-year events in the past decade alone. Recent efforts by the city's 23,000 residents to combat flooding - and wrestle with the potential effects of climate change - have in many ways made Keene a model for municipalities across the country.
