Animated Flooding Maps – Storm Surge, Sea Level Rise And River Flooding

Some guy did a simulation animation of what would happen if Pittsburgh flooded due to things like a storm surge, sea level rise, or other event. Basically, downtown, the Strip District, Lawrenceville, the South Side and the North Shore are gone. Below are some other visualizations of this.

Thanks, and go check out the original post.


Blue represents the area covered by water; the topo map has been converted to grayscale so that you can see the water more easily.
