Destination: Tangier Island, VA

Soundings, Sept-2010

Tangier Island, VA, is one of only two remaining watermen-inhabited islands left in the Chesapeake Bay, and both are doomed by global warming: With its highest point only 4 ft. above sea level (lower then the Maldives), and in an area with the fast relative sea level increase on the U.S. East Coast, inundation models show Tangier permanently submerged within 30 years.

This destination story on Tangier Island and its people appeared in the September 2010 issue of Soundings magazine, online here.
