Rising Seas Bring 400% More High Tide Flooding


  • Sea level has risen 8 inches in Florida since 1950, mainly because of a warmer ocean that expands and melting ice sheets in North and South pole.
  • In Florida just 4 inches of sea level rise in the last 20 years has meant 400% more high tide flooding.
  • And it will rise faster, another 7 inches in the next 20 years, tripling flooding again, adding an average of 18 floods a year.
