New Hampshire hosts summit on coastal flooding

AP LogoHAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — Mayors and other elected officials from 18 states are concluding their bipartisan summit on coastal flooding Sunday in Hampton, New Hampshire.

Portsmouth Mayor Robert Lister, a Democrat, and Republican state Sen. Nancy Stiles of Hampton say coastal flooding is too important an issue to be ignored.

The Rising Tides summit brings together officials representing a total of 95,000 miles of coastline, including some who are just starting to evaluate the risks flooding poses to infrastructure, homes and the economy and others who have done years of analysis.

The group is calling for increased state and federal support for such planning, and urging presidential candidates to address the issue.
