Miami-Dade Prepares For Rising Seas

Jul 5, 2017

Florida is facing major threats from climate change and sea level rise. Up to six feet of water could inundate the coast by the end of the century. Officials are trying to prepare and “resilience officers” are leading the charge in the Miami-area. 

WWNO’s Tegan Wendland met up with James Murley, Miami-Dade’s chief resilience officer, to talk about how the tourist mecca is grappling with these challenges.
