Jacksonville is surrounded and bisected by water. So sea level rise ought to be raising concerns here.If tropical storms become stronger, the impacts could be severe.
If flooding becomes more frequent, if rivers rise, the entire topography of Northeast Florida would be dramatically affected. Impacts of sea level rise can already be seen in Miami — tides backing up into the streets, salt water intrusion in the water supplies.
Of course, Miami, having been created out of low lying areas, is especially vulnerable to sea level rise.
