Sea-Level Rising in South Florida, Threatening Coastal Communities

A tour of Miami Beach reveals the elevated roads, expensive pumping systems, and other measures the city has taken to mitigate the effects of climate change so far. Southern Florida is the economic driver of the state, and while sea-level rise is a threat to the region, the state's coastline remains a hotbed of tourism and development. In a special reporting trip to Miami, The Takeaway brings you live to the front lines of climate change and urban resilience. Plus, we hear from a graduating student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School; a report on the unfolding chaos in Guatemala where a volcanic eruption has killed dozens; and an examination of the Supreme Court's decision today to side with Masterpiece Cakeshop.
