PORTSMOTH R.I.__ Kristina Thompson purchased her home in 2000 with her husband. When she did purchase her home, she did not consult the SLAMM maps because they were not developed yet, but maps like it were.
“That I don’t know its a possibility,” said Thompson about her neighbors consulting the SLAMM maps, “I don’t think anyone would leave their homes unless there was a title wave or something.”
The last flood to happen at Common Fence Point Blvd was in 1954, according to Thompson. The water came three feet high on the homes. Since then there has been no flooding in the area.
“There was a storm surge during Sandy, but it was gone as soon as it came,” said Thompson.
Her family is very active and they own a boat. The house came with a mooring so they can keep their boat in the water just outside their home. They enjoy boating, fishing and sailing. They also recently got a puppy named Stanley.
