Venice by Submarine?

Venice is all about water. Just not quite this much water.

It seems high winds and high tides have conspired to raise the water level nearly five feet above sea level, further submerging the city of water.

It’s called acqua alta, and, say the folks at Grist, it’s happening more than it used to. This latest event is a near record.

“There is one advantage that Venice has in the event that its fate mirrors that of Atlantis,” writes Philip Bump, “an advantage over many other low-lying and ocean-adjacent locales as sea levels rise: It’s already outfitted with a full complement of boats.”
