4. New Orleans, Louisiana

We don’t know about you, but in our opinion, New Orleans is one of the most gorgeous cities in all of America, and we’re particularly fans of the French Quarter. Unfortunately, citizens were witnesses to the powers of mother nature, especially in 2005, when Hurricane Katrina made a mess in the city.

Over the past decade, the Big Easy did its best to get back on track and recover from all the massive destruction it’s been a victim of, but research says that this Louisiana city is going to need a lot more to protect itself from the problems that might occur along the way.

Experts claim that New Orleans might be underwater by the year 2040, although coastal restoration projects are still going strong. Guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens!

  1. This one is at least believable, seeing as though the entire city is below sea level, with the Gulf waters being held back by the levees. Sure, those levees could break again, though they’re under control of the Army COE.
