Many scientists have expressed concerns that rising sea levels and growing population could be problematic for Florida’s coastal communities. Florida Matters wants to hear what you think.

Are you or anyone you know experiencing changes in your neighborhoods that could be related to sea level rise? Or do you feel this phenomenon isn’t a real threat to Florida?

Share your questions and comments with us, and they may be featured in an upcoming episode of Florida Matters.

Call 813-396-WUSF or email FloridaMatters@wusf.org to join the conversation.

Be sure to leave your first and last name, where you are from and whether you are interested in recording your response for us to potentially use in our program.

You can view simulations of potential impacts from coastal flooding and sea level rise in your community with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's interactive Sea Level Rise Viewer.
