Commuters brave the ever-more-frequent high tide flooding in Mill Valley

This is how Climate Change hits home . . .

As once-a-year flooding becomes once-a-month heading toward once-a-day (see picture.)

As new flood-plain maps are published by FEMA, and property owners are warned to expect big increases in their flood insurance bill. . . or are told they will have to buy flood insurance for the first time ever.
