    Default Maybe your house will be under water soon

    Technically, I live in one of the most flood prone (or the worst) cities(and region) in America. Most of the area I live in is either a little above or below current sea levels. While we don't get severe weather, like say Florida, on a yearly basis, a severe one could of knocked out quite a bit of this area if our (old) levee system broke apart.

    It has only been recent that they have been devising ways to prevent that from happening because quite a bit of California (especially Southern California and any cities and towns in California that depend on water) depends on this region. In fact, IT was only realized once Hurricane Katrina happened. The year after Hurricane Katrina happened, we found ourselves on a near constant rain for two weeks straight that could of potentially broken our own levee system and flood the region.

    So, I won't be surprised if this place does end up flooding if we don't fix this area soon. But, hey, we (the USACE, state, and city) are doing something about this place before anything like that happens, or have done a lot since then.

    EDIT: But my spot for elevated ocean levels? My spot is safe.

    I think I appear safe, but every year or two heavy rainfall makes the St-Lawrence overflow, and BAM! A little bit of flood damage in the dowtown district of my town.

    The funny thing is that we live on a lake.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Amazingly, you can hit the highest point by melting all the ice in the world. However, I believe it will take a very long time for that to happen, even with global warming. Until that does happen, my area isn't going to be underwater. I can feel comfortable knowing I'll be on dry land and only totally fucked by the subsequent costs of environmental crisis. Yay!
