South Beach at Sea Level

search the entire Original Green site

   Tidal flooding is the worst it's ever been in South Beach. Ten years ago when I moved here, nobody ever mentioned tidal flooding. Now, it's getting worse all the time as sea levels rise. While the politicians fiddle, South Beach floods.

   To be clear, the city says it's a storm drainage problem, and that their new pipes will fix it. But when sea level is higher than the streets, there's nothing a pipe can do.
