I understand large parts of the Jersey Shore including Atlantic City were also submerged and that AC is also sinking and may not exist in 50 years based on global warming acolytes. Which means Manhattan will also be underwater?
We know a little old woman who lived on Long Beach. The water in her apartment was up to her neck. Fortunately, her son got there just in time to get her out or she would have drowned in her own apartment.

Yes, it was very bad. She moved to more inland on Long Island.

First they claim this..

"This study provides very robust measurements of sea level heights during the Pliocene."

..but when you actually read their paper.....you find this

(with an uncertainty range of 5.6 to 19.2 meters)

...what they actually found was they think sea level was somewhere between 5 and 20 meters higher
