Avalon - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration reports that by midcentury the Jersey Shore should expect floods every month, on average, like those that the storm of Jan. 23 produced. Water levels at Atlantic City, for example, were about 2.5 feet above the average highest tides. Recently, an Avalon spouter suggested that we should "just live with" rising ocean levels and global warming. It would be most interesting if we could be around at midcentury to see if the spouter was willing to "live with" monthly flooding of Jersey Shore towns.

Moderator's Note: 
A Philly.com article Jan. 24 confirms, "...by midcentury, the Shore should expect floods this bad every month, on average, according to projections summarized in a new U.S. government report."
