Rising Seas: Miami, Florida

Rising Seas: Miami, Florida

by Kevin Blake

Miami has a serious problem—water! Sometimes, on sunny days, water bubbles up from storm drains. Residents find their homes flooded. On some days, they see cars floating like boats and even fish swimming in pools of water in the streets. What is going on? And can anything be done to save the city from being completely flooded with water? Rising Seas: Miami, Florida traces the tragic story of the causes of global warming, how this affects Miami—a city built on porous limestone—and how engineers are using pumps and other technologies to save the city from disaster. Fascinating photos of the actual events, maps, and fact boxes enrich the compelling text. The personal and heart-breaking story will grip and inspire young readers.
