South Miami Votes to Split Florida

Dec 1, 2017

South Miami, a vibrant city located in Florida, made headlines recently as its residents voted in favor of splitting Florida into two separated states, with the aim of combatting the ongoing issue of flooding. This groundbreaking decision has garnered attention nationwide and marks a significant step towards addressing the challenges posed by rising sea levels and extreme weather events.

The Effects of Flooding in South Florida

Flooding has become an increasingly prevalent concern for the residents of South Florida. With its low-lying terrain and proximity to the Atlantic Ocean, the region is particularly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Heavy rainfall, storm surges, and a rising water table have led to an alarming rise in the frequency and intensity of flooding events, affecting both residential and commercial properties.

Recognizing the need for innovative solutions, the community of South Miami came together and embarked on an ambitious plan to take matters into their own hands. By splitting Florida into two separate states, the goal is to allocate resources more efficiently and enable targeted efforts in flood mitigation, prevention, and recovery.
