3D Models of Storm Surge and Sea Level Rise in Tampa Bay

In support of Resilient Tampa Bay, TBRPC’s Visualization and 3D Design program modeled the most severe flooding from a Category 3 hurricane with high sea level rise in 2045, as well as a storm that would drop nine inches of rain in one day. In such scenarios, models show, streets could temporarily look like rivers in downtown St. Petersburg and downtown Tampa. Across Hillsborough, Pinellas and Pasco counties, hundreds of miles of roads would be vulnerable to flooding.
