From today’s local rag:
“Jamestown Island is mostly less than 3 feet of elevation,” she said. “If the high projection is correct, then in 50 years, it would be predominantly under water.”
Levees would do nothing to help, she added. “The water’s actually coming up through the ground as well,” Mitchell said. “It’s a very spongy sort of ground. Just building a levee around it won’t keep the water out.”
I have nothing to add. Just read the rest.
