“Climate change could lead to sea-level rise capable of flooding 56 square miles of South Sound by the end of the century, a report released Wednesday [Jan 11] says.
The rising waters of Puget Sound would affect at least 44,429 people, a population greater than the city of Olympia. The city, particularly its downtown, would be one of the most heavily affected areas, the $100,000 report says.
The study group used a 24-inch sea-level rise estimate, based on a projection that the northeast Pacific Ocean will rise between 3 and 40 inches,” quoting The Olympian.
How would that affect the Nisqually River Basin & the City of Yelm & vicinity?
