• Modeling finds millions of homes are vulnerable * Regions far east of today’s large wildfires not immune

A handful of counties in Georgia, for example, had among the largest projected increases in the proportion of homes of at least medium risk of wildfires by 2052.

“Wildfire risk is increasing so much faster than even flood risk is across the U.S.,” said Ed Kearns, the group’s director of advocacy.

South Carolina and North Carolina both have among the top U.S. states in terms of the number of homes at least considered to be at moderate risk of fires in 2022.

It deployed a new model that would allow homeowners and other homeowners to conduct detailed risk assessments, including wildfires and flooding, of the climate-related threats that are facing their homes.
