A recent report from the U. S. Geological Survey has sent warning signals in the society by claiming that coastal cities and wetlands in the US are more likely to be at risk of floods. There is no doubt over the way climatic changes are surprising every single country around the world in some or the other way.
"We found what we call a hot spot of acceleration. This is the only location within the country and a good chunk of North America where this kind of thing is happening”, said study author Asbury Sallenger Jr. It was claimed after the team noticed the change of sea levels from Cape Hatteras to Cape Cod and concluded that there has been a consistent rise unlike other parts of Earth. It has also been observed that along the U. S. Atlantic coast, the rate at which water is rising is far more than anywhere on the globe, thereby making it all the more clear that there is simmering concern for countries to watch out for.
As far as the reason for the same is concerned, it is believed that gradual slowdown observed in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation, said the report. With this news getting the attention of one and all, it would not be wrong to say that there would be some sort of impact observed in nearby regions including Baltimore and Norfolk-Virginia Beach, New York City, Philadelphia etc.
