Floods Coming Due To A Wobble In Moon’s Orbit
NASA says there will be a "wobble" in the moon's orbit that will bring the United States a surge in high-tide floods along its coasts.
This wobble in the moon's orbit not supposed to occur until the mid-2030s, but when it does there will be high tides and flooding to the U.S coastlines and low lying areas could see significant damage.
According to WOOD, there is a lunar cycle that will amplify rising sea levels that will be fueled by climate change that will lead to high tide flooding. NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said, "low-lying areas near sea level are increasingly at risk and suffering due to the increased flooding, and it will only get worse."
When this moon wobble happens, NASA says this will bring a decade of dramatic increases in coastal flooding. Alaska looks like it will suffer the most but our southern coastline along Louisiana will have its share of problems as well.
Although the Great Lakes do not have tides, the moon can still affect how the lakes behave coupled with barometric pressure and the weather at the time. There still is a chance the moon's wobble in orbit could still affect the Great Lakes.
WOOD reported that a wobble in the moon's orbit takes almost 19 years to complete. This has been studied since 1728 with the first wobble was reported.
If you are one of those preppers for disasters you may might not have much to prep for here around the Great Lakes but if you plan on moving to one of the America's coasts, you may want to take a good look at the location and its history of high tide flooding.
