While New Yorkers pump water out of the subway system and low-lying structures, some engineers and city planning experts warn it's a sign of what could come to the Boston area unless the city prepares and for the likelihood of larger storms.

Ellen Douglas, associated professor, hydrologist and engineer at UMass Boston, joined WBUR's Morning Edition to look at what could be done to better protect Boston against big storms like Sandy.

This program aired on November 1, 2012.
