Rising waters, Charleston

If sea levels rose 5 feet what would downtown Charleston look like?

What the Charleston peninsula would look like under 5 feet of water.

About half the Charleston peninsula, most property near the marsh in Mount Pleasant, and much of Sullivan’s Island and Folly Beach would be under water.
