Gov. Chris Christie says New Jersey is adopting the advisory flood maps released last month by the federal government to help guide rebuilding following Superstorm Sandy.

The maps establish new standards for rebuilding along the Jersey Shore. They show a much higher risk of flooding in some areas than the old maps did and establish tougher standards for rebuilding, including higher elevations.
