About this Episode

Where will you be when sea waters rise the most? In September, 2018, Hurricane Florence pushed waters 3.6 feet above the high tide line in Wilmington, NC. Don Bain, a scientist at Climate Central in Princeton, NJ, says this kind of flooding may be a yearly event by the end of the century due to climate change. In this episode, Don explains the "Surging Seas" project, a group of map-based tools to help people better understand climate change and how rising seas will affect your area. Produced by Ben Abrams. Music by Meydän.Broadcast from the Working Narratives studio, this series examines environmental news in the coastal Carolina region.
