As reported by the American edition The National Interest, the main naval base of the Atlantic fleet of naval forces of the United States (US Navy) in Norfolk, Virginia, may go under water.
It is specified that the research organization the American Security Project included a database in the list of the military facilities who face the greatest risks of climate change. So, since 2000, in Norfolk, was much more flooding than before.
Many assessment models of climate shifts suggests that in the future floods will be even bigger, and by the year 2100 flood level will rise half a meter.
In addition, in connection with climate change in the region will start to come more powerful hurricanes. Representatives of the U.S. army corps of engineers are saying that one of these elements can destroy the base in Norfolk and the related infrastructure.
According to The National Interest, the leadership of the U.S. Navy may abandon the construction in the most vulnerable parts of the base to solve the current problem, however, to fully protect the infrastructure in terms of budgetary savings will be very difficult.
Note that the base of the U.S. Navy in Norfolk is the largest naval base in the world.
