    has flood zones based on storm surge expected by storms set by category. Thats how I understood it as explained on ABC earlier.

      OK, I didn't know that.

      I think removing those factors from category designation was a fairly recent thing, so maybe the NYC flood zones have not caught up yet.  

      That is a frightening thought.  People could die due to such bureaucratic inertia.
