      I came across some information regarding the impact of Florence and other hurricanes. It seems that the flooding caused by the storm is severely aggravated by sea level rise. In the end this leads to a new evaluation of the value of a property lying in one of the areas that will be affected by future changes in sea level. An article covering this topic can be found here:
      https://www.axios.com/sea-level-rise...c4d522fcb.html

      Another valuable information is what areas will be affected by future sea level changes. There is a comparison between predicted flood areas and the current situation as well as an extrapolation to 2050 here:

      May He hold his hands above and give strength to all the poor victims of this new desaster!

        I'm not sure that a decade of rising sea levels will significantly change the waves height of a hurricane(say 30 feet) devastating the shoreline.
        And on the few hours of hurricane duration, the rise of the sea due to the atmospheric depression (say 3 feet) still remains very preponderant.
        In the meantime, the IPCC will have found other sources of subsidies

          My impression from here:
          https://www.axios.com/sea-level-rise...4c3001d64.html

          has been that their simulation has been remarcably accurate and as an engineer my training tells me that a mathematical model which has predicted results that accurately fifty years into the future will accuratly predict the future thirty years from now. The sad news is that all those who bought property in the areas which will be flooded in future hurricanes will have to take into account the fact that they basically can not hand down any value to their children. As we see now with Florence the greatest devastation is not brought about by the storm but by the flooding that comes after it. Here the backwater in the storm-water drainage due to sea level rise considerably exacerbates the flooding. The map in the link above shows that the size of the affected areas will roughly have doubled by 2050.

            Just weeks after Florence we have yet again to express our deepest sympathy to the victims of a terrible desaster. Michael has hit Florida as a hurricane never seen before. It made landfall with wind speeds just 2mph shy of making it category 5. Unfortunately the latest IPCC report on climate change indicates that much worse is to come if we fail to limit global warming. May He hold his hands above and give strength to all the poor victims of this new desaster and give us eyes to see what action is reqired and the strength to do what is necessary.
