As if we didn't have enough to deal with Corona virus..... now this !
Flooding, storms and dam failures are the biggest environmental threats facing North Adams, and climate change is exacerbating those risks.
The city outlined the dangers in a draft Hazard Mitigation and Climate Adaptation Plan published recently. Under federal law, the city must prepare the plan to be eligible for mitigation project grants.
The report also details potential threats from droughts, tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires, landslides, insect-borne illnesses, invasive species and cyberattacks.
