From Mike Finkbeiner, the only engineer/surveyor in town who seems to understand waterfront issues. You got a home on the water or on a flood plain or are considering buying one, hire Mike to do an analysis (I can’t get his website,”earth image.net” to respond at this moment, but I’ll fix the link soon- meantime, he’s in the book).
Assessment report- Tues Oct 30 am.
Winds South 25 – 35 mph
Waves 4-6 ft
Damaged docks – only observed at the Yacht Clubs.
General high water observed at NAVD (North American Vertical Datum of 1983) = FEMA Flood datum of 11.0 ft, or 15 ft over MLLW (NOAA’s tidal datum.)
Analysis of the storm surge to follow.
Findings: This is a rainbow at the end – promising God will not destroy all mankind by means of flooding.
See Jones Rock Light off the Federal Calf Islands in Byram Harbor.
For SB – a follow-up photo of Old Greenwich Yacht Club – water about half way up the windows. What were you all thinking with those sandbags?
Governor Cuomo sandbags?
