7 States That May Have Big Flooding Problems by 2050

Alabama: Significant flooding is predicted along Alabama's coast, affecting Mobile Bay and the Delta Wildlife Management Area, posing a threat to Mobile and extending northward along the Alabama and Mobile Rivers.

California: While California won't sink into the sea due to global warming, flooding risks are highlighted in areas like Belmont Park, Naples, and industrial zones west of Long Beach, with substantial concerns in the Bay area, affecting locations such as North San Jose, Stockton, Sacramento, San Rafael, and San Pablo.

Florida: Florida faces rising seawater challenges, with potential sinking of the Keys and coastal Everglades, flooding risks from Naples to Miami, including low-lying areas in Tampa, Fort Myers, and Jacksonville.

Louisiana: Large inland tracts of the Louisiana coast, including the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge, Rockefeller Wildlife Refuge, and the southern Mississippi Delta, are at risk of flooding, while New Orleans may remain an island if its levees hold.

Maryland: Maryland anticipates losses on its eastern shore, affecting the Blackwater Wildlife Refuge, Pocomoke Sound area, and Assateague Island, with flooding risks in Chincoteague Bay's entire coast.

New Jersey: Southern New Jersey faces catastrophic flooding risks, impacting low-lying areas along the Delaware River, Delaware Bay coast, and Atlantic barrier islands. Northern areas, including New Brunswick and East Brunswick, may experience flooding.

New York:Coastal areas and offshore islands in both coasts of Great South Bay are at risk in New York, with potential submersion of LaGuardia Airport, the Hudson River Greenway, FDR Drive, and Riverbank State Park in Upper Manhattan.
