Rise in sea-level and US coastal cities.

According to a new study by the Union of Concerned Scientists, the US coastal communities will experience debilitating inundation this century.

Areas identified to be especially vulnerable includes Miami Beach, Galveston and Texas which would become basically uninhabitable.

The report suggests that by 2100, parts of every coastal county in the United States will experience long-lasting and recurrent chronic flooding making normal activities impossible.

The report also predicts that relocation of inhabitants of affected area will be the only option.

The cause is identified but not limited to tidal flooding, rise in sea-level, melting ice in Antarctica and rise in ocean levels at different rates around the world.

Through a broader view, not just the United States but coastal cities all over the world would be hit by the effects of these identified issues.

However, if rapid climate actions can be taken, these played out scenerio could surely be avoided.
