How is a valley possible in Florida? Granted I've been to sugar Hill "mountain" and mount Dora but even then it seems like a stretch.

Zero information on where this levee is or if it's been breached. Just the same story repeated a dozen times, almost word for word from 5+ hours ago.

It's God's will. Who are we to be so arrogant as to interfere with God's Devine plan for Florida?

It's the Sarasota Herald-Tribune

At this point I'm pretty sure that news organ is just an intern with some basic design skills pasting articles into the layout

It's fun to live near the shore.

'cept... the area in question is like 25 miles inland.

And this is only 15 miles inland, not the 25 I quoted earlier.

If Florida flips blue do the people there instantly stop being subhumans unworthy of compassion?

Good thing DeSantis didn't waste money on stupid shiat, so he'll have no problems fixing this crisis.

You know all that global warming stuff they said was going to happen in fifty or sixty years back around 2000? Well we made it worse faster than we thought and that's happening now. And we have barely even started attempting to address the damage we're doing. We're farked. The planet will be fine, humans are screwed.
