Key West, Fla.
Key West, Fla.
Only 5.5 metres above sea level, the city of Key West is the southernmost point in the continental United States. Known for its Cuban influence, warm climate and massive floods, Key West, Fla., is expected to succumb to global warming’s rising sea levels in the next 50 years. With the threat of the city drowning looming over their heads, Florida officials are constantly working on alternative plans to give the city at least 20 to 30 years more than expected. Though the end is inevitable, the residents are hoping to extend the quality of life in their tropical city with whatever measures may help keep the city afloat.
