The portal ND More revealed, based on maps from the Climate Central organization platform, that cities on the North Coast of Santa Catarina could have submerged points due to rising sea levels.

According to the study, some known locations in Santa Catarina could face significant flooding in 2050, if problems related to the increase in global temperatures persist.
