What US cities will look like under 25 feet of water

Coastal cities could see a rise in sea levels by as much as 4 ft by the end of the century. To help put a visual to the number, artist Nickolay Lamm created this series of simulations of US city landmarks as affected by sea levels rising 5, 12 and 25 feet. Using Climate Central‘s sea level rise maps, Lamm imagines recognisable locales such as Venice Beach CA, Miami Beach FL, and Boston Harbour with catastrophic flooding.
