    "Bock and his colleagues calculate that the city and surrounding land could sink by about 80 mm (3.2 inches) relative to the sea in the next 20 years if the current rate holds steady."
  • DrCaleb: You are right. "Live Science" is very misleading. Does this look like 80mm to you?



    The tide was 6 feet over normal. FEET.
