Website Predicts Flooding From Sea-Level Rise

Flooded annapolisWant to see what your neighborhood may look like with sea-level rise?

Well, if you live near the Chesapeake Bay in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, an interesting new online mapping tool called “Future Coast” will give you a chance to peer into the crystal ball.  Check it out by clicking here, and then enter your address.

The website predicts that parts of downtown Annapolis and the Naval Academy (among many other places) will flood more often over the next century as climate change and the natural sinking of land around the Chesapeake region continues to erode shorelines.

Take a look and let us know what you think.

I have a friend living in downtown Annapolis and yes, they're experiencing this terrible condition. How will the government respond to this problem? What will happen to these areas after 10 to 20 years? Is there a strategic plan concurred by the government to counteract the effects of Climate Change?
