Great Flood in The Offing: Rising Sea Level Threatens New York, Norfolk, Boston, Philadelphia, and Baltimore
Another Great Deluge coming? “Rising sea level puts US Atlantic coast at risk: report,” AFP informs June 24, 2012 evening (Bahrain time) in Yahoo News.
AFP cites studies made by the US Geological Survey (USGS), as well as by European scientists, published both in Nature Climate Change, that point to rising sea levels and the danger these pose to coastal cities.
USGS observes that flooding threatens the “stretch of the US Atlantic coast that features the cities of New York, Norfolk and Boston,” among others, due to sea level “rising up to four times faster than the global average.”
