About MyCoast: Maryland
If your community has recently experienced flooding or storm damage, you’re in the right place. Maryland is becoming increasingly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, which means increasing and worsening storms, increasing precipitation, and increasing nuisance (sunny day) flooding as sea levels rise.
Created in 2019, MyCoast: Maryland is an initiative within the Maryland Department of Natural Resources’, Chesapeake and Coastal Service, designed to give you a platform where you can share photos to document on the ground impacts of flooding and damage that are attributed to rain, storms, or high tides. This helps us determine how often a community is flooding and where, which can help identify and prioritize climate change resilience and restoration opportunities.
By using MyCoast you are helping document important weather and climate related events in your community. We analyze this data to make informed management decisions.
Thank you for using our app!
