Is Sea Level Rise Already Increasing Flooding?

I was going to do a post on this, but a number of other groups have already done a much better job than I could do so I've summarized some of them here.

Many areas experience flooding that is due to tides rather than weather. A common term for this is 'sunny day floods' that notes that it's flooding with no rain.

As sea level rises, presumably these floods become more common. Two cool visualizations of this were done by the New York Times and Climate Central.

I can't think of a better way to present this data, so check out those links to their visualizations and enjoy. A tool from the Climate Central is embedded below:
