The Southeast Florida Regional Climate Change Compact says the increase could be up to 81in by 2100.

Mar-a-Lago is an exclusive social club, with a property that stretches east to west across the island.

Donald Trump Jr. got married there two weeks after Hurricane Wilma, which seems like an event unlikely to have taken place had Mar-a-Lago been the cracked, water-stained mess Trump seems to have claimed.
