Miami Building Collapse Raises Concerns About Coastal Resiliency
A story in VICE references RFF's Florida Climate Outlook in a story about the potential role of climate change in the partial collapse of a Miami condominium.
"The possible role of climate change in the tragedy was top of mind for many. Like many coastal communities in the U.S., Miami has long been considered highly vulnerable to the threat of climate change and rising tides. A 2020 report by nonprofit thinktank Resources for the Future called the city 'one of the most at-risk cities in the world' to coastal flooding and storms, pointing to Miami Beach, specifically, as notably exposed to flooding and saltwater intrusion."
