6 Feet of SLR on the Northern Gulf Coast means New Orleans will be surrounded by water.

Not as bad as South Florida, though.

High Tide flooding on Fort Lauderdale Beach.

Hallandale Beach where 7 out of 8 wells are contaminated with seawater.
With just 6 feet of SLR, much or all of THAT place, will be utterly destroyed or made unlivable even if no hurricane or tropical storm hits it. Because of the porous limestone bedrock that's right at the surface, the rising seas will invade the Biscayne Aquifer, depriving the area of its drinking water. Already SEVEN out of EIGHT wells in Hallandale Beach have been invaded by salt water. (Click  here.)

And with a 10-foot SLR Miami Beach is inundated. Miami-Dade is utterly destroyed.
I guess the elevated Metrorail will become a scenic electric railway, accessible by boat!
