Your home and sea level rises

I had a thread on this more than 3 years ago but I assume that some of you have either moved since then or else never took part in that thread.

If you go to this site you can see how your home will fare with different rises in sea level (from 1 meter to 60).

At 9 meters my house is safe at 13 meters I am about 100 meters from the beach and at 20 meters I am flooded.

Here is a map of my suburb (circled in red) at 9 meters.

I am 162m above sea level. Better be damn safe at that height.

If the sea level rises 60 meters (196.85 feet), I'm safe -- just barely. Everything two blocks south of me will be under water.

I'll have a great harbor view so long as we don't top 20m or so.

Re: Your home and sea level rises

Cool map, was looking for something like that a long time. So ... after just 1m rise I will have a beautifull lake view ... after 3m the house is flooded and becomes the Bremen beach of the North Sea. At +9m Bremen is almost entirely gone. For the record, Bremen is Germany's 10th biggest city. South of Hamburg seems to be gone with +2m ... Germany's third biggest city.

Re: Your home and sea level rises

My town would be well above the water at a 60m rise. According to the map, it also shows the building where I work right on the shore of an island That means my room will be dry at low tide

My part of London would just about be safe at +60m (albeit I'd have a nice sea view), though most of the rest of London would be flooded.

At 60m only the bottom end of my street would be under water...unfortunately that's where my house is!

Re: Your home and sea level rises

This is cool.

My house actually makes it to 9m--but by then we are an island where a good winter storm would swamp us completely. My brother's house near the shore on the Hudson makes it to 20m.

Where I'm looking for land, it's 660m, so I think we're safe...

Up to thirty meters are no problem for me. Towards 40 I might get wet.

This is awesome - at 60 m I'm a mile from the beach!

When do we start?

Re: Your home and sea level rises

No problem here. I'm at nearly 1400 m, so the world will be well and truly screwed and civilization will have been long gone by the time rising sea levels will get to my home.
