Climate Change Organization Releases New Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Report; Video Features Middle Peninsula


Climate Central, a non-profit climate change research and journalism organization, has released a new report, titled “Surging Seas”, which aims to show the combined risks of sea level rise and storm surge to coastal areas of the contiguous United States. The analysis estimates the amount of land, housing, and population in areas vulnerable to flooding and sea level rise. The project also includes a website featuring an interactive map showing vulnerable areas and the likelihood of inundation and fact sheets for each state included in the study. The same organization also produced a short video including interviews with Virginians living on the Middle Peninsula who are already having to address flooding and sea level rise. The video can be seen here: http://vimeo.com/38473953. The project website is http://sealevel.climatecentral.org/.
