Coastal flooding is a problem that could affect many/ have affected many. This issue is not only expensive and unpredictable but also harmful in many ways. Some very harmful things that are an effect of this issue are the risk of ineffective storm drains, closed roads, and contaminated drinking water, which comes from the fact there is too much salt water to filter out. There is not much humans can do as a whole to prevent this overall problem, but the things they can do should be done. Some solutions are making more places for the water to get filtered, building structures like houses or buildings on higher land to prevent flood damage to the structures, and stop littering, which especially leaves us with having a lot of trash to clean up in the aftermath. Although most of these things can’t be done overnight. We can always take small steps in the community by picking up trash and cleaning up the community as a whole to help the cause.
