In New Jersey, Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer announced a proposal to build seawalls and other mitigation efforts to fortify the city against flooding from future storms.

Zimmer wants to make Hoboken a test case for low-lying coastal cities like Boston and Philadelphia, but she’ll need approval and support from the federal government to do it.
