As with Miami Florida’s coastal cities under threat of being taken by the sea, another place where the same threat is growing in strength. This story admits that yearly flooding is quite normal. But, it also states that the “norm” is worse than normal. The debate is not about the flooding waters. It is about what the people should do. A bit more pro active for a story line. But sadly, I suspect the truth is that beach erosion being the historical term used for a long time, has now morphed into “city erosion”, or coastal erosion.

Here is the story about Nigeria’s city of Lagos.
