A Coastal Impact Study - Nation Under Siege - Architecture 2030
Such cities as Miami Beach and Hollywood, Fla.; New Orleans; Hampton,
Va.; and Point Pleasant, N.J., would have major areas underwater with
a sea rise of 1 meter or less. By a 1.5-meter rise, Miami and other
Florida communities, along with East Boston, Mass.; Galveston, Texas;
and Atlantic City, N.J., are in deep trouble. By 3 meters, San
Francisco, New York, Boston, San Diego and Savannah, Ga., fall victim
to severe damage.
