There are certain parts of Texas you might to avoid moving too and there are others you might want to look into buying.

The lone star state is the 2nd biggest state in the United States of America but, between now and 2100, we're going to lose a little mass. Not enough to lose our "second biggest" status but, we're going to shrink a tad.

We can thank natures new weight loss plan, aka "global warming", for helping Texas to slim down some. As polar ice caps melt, water levels rise and, if current predictions hold up, a big chunk of the Texas coastline is going under.

Some areas will become uninhabitable while others will soon be beachfront property. Houston, in particular, will wind up closer to the beach than it is now while current beachfront spots may sink. See a map here.

What If Water Levels Rise By 3 Feet?

According to Newsweek, Nueces Bay, near Corpus Christi, would stretch further inland, the sea would flood lakes near Vanderbilt, Jackson County and enlarge Lavaca Bay. The San Bernard and Brazoria National Wildlife Refuges would be submerged and Freeport becomes a new peninsula.

What If Water Levels Rise By 6 Feet?

Newsweek says the San Jacinto battleground swamped by Crystal Bay and the bridge across the San Jacinto River would need rebuilding.

East North Beach in Corpus Christ become a few small islands and Galveston island way shrinks. Adios to the Nueces Bay Causeway and Scholes Airport. See what Texas could someday look like here.

What Is The Highest Water Levels Could Rise?

If the ice sheets in Antarctica AND Greenland melt, water levels will rise by over 200 feet. Florida's done for and Houston gets a beach on the Gulf.
