Climate scientists project that the Pacific Ocean could rise anywhere from three to more than nine feet along the California coast by the end of this century. That could mean big changes for a lot of coastal communities that have built homes and businesses right up to the shoreline. Last week, Seal Beach residents got a chance to check out maps predicting what parts of the community would be lost if the sea rises by 6 feet.
