When it comes to climate change, one thing is certain: our oceans are rising. And South Florida is expected to be among the first regions on Earth to experience the impact. In fact, some initial preparations are already underway. WLRN-Miami Herald News presents a series of stories about the effects of sea-level rise. The project is called “Elevation Zero: Rising Seas In South Florida." Click through the pages below to see our entire archive of Elevation Zero stories.

WLRN Town Hall Will Focus On What Sea-Level Rise Means For South Florida

How much do you know about sea-level rise?

How severe is the threat? And what are communities in South Florida doing to deal with higher waters?

On Monday night from 6-8 p.m., WLRN is hosting a town hall exploring the fundamentals of sea-level rise.

The event is open to the public and will feature artists, scientists, policymakers and reporters talking about the threat from the rising sea and what individuals, neighborhoods and communities can do in response.

Tickets are now sold out, but you can still join us starting at 6 p.m. via a livestream video on WLRN's Facebook page.
