You are on the front lines!
The low elevation neighborhoods of Tam Valley are most vulnerable to rising sea levels and flooding from storms.

1-foot sea level rise + storm surge
- Realistic predictions for additional Sea-Level-Rise (SLR) range from 1 foot by 2035 and 2 feet by 2045 to 4 to 6.5 feet by 2100.
- The State of California’s Sea-Level Guidance calls for agencies to plan for a 3.5 foot rise by 2050 and 7.6 foot rise by 2100.
- In Tam Valley, a one-foot rise combined with a storm surge (see image above) would breach levees and inundate almost all of Birdland and Kay Park. Access to Miller Avenue and Highway 101 would be blocked.
- There is no simple answer! Solutions will be expensive, inconvenient, and take years to implement.
We are not going to stop sea level rise. We have to adapt to it.
