The beach was eroded away last month when Hurricane Sandy passed by to the east and now City officials are saying that the damage may preview what rising sea levels can mean for coastal communities throughout South Florida. Climate scientists predict sea levels in South Florida will rise by 1 foot by 2070, 2 feet by 2115, and 3 feet by 2150. (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
