I think so too. They have been expecting the entire city to sink, as it really would cost too much for them to try to save.

I'm in Yeovil but it looks like it a few decades going to the seaside could be only a few miles and Taunton is going to end up a seaside town. This is going on everywhere where there are lowlands vulnerable to the sea.

It was only a few thousand years ago there was land between the UK and Europe, Doggerland? I think it was called that was taken by rising sea levels. I forget the name of the current ice age we are in but assume we are coming out of it as glaciers are melting and more water is released back into the oceans, this was happening anyway even before global warming due to man's activities so we are accelerating the process. I'm sure many countries of Europe and the rest of the world have very vulnerable areas.
