Flooding Ditto

Hurricane Irma one of the most lethal storms in history is threatening Florida. I am very familiar with the Miami, Fort Lauderdale area because close family members live there and I visit often. While the area has better zoning than Houston growth has still been unchecked. The oceanfront which is particularly flood prone is all built up with high rises.

Miami, has been for some years felt the effects of global warming. I have stayed in an area of Miami Beach where the streets are being raised due to flooding from Biscayne Bay. Written by Paul Dribin
