In a departure from transit and housing, today we present a map created by Imgur user Fejetlenfej. This map shows the massive expanse of river basins across the United States, especially those which feed the Mississippi River.
The rivers that feed the Mississippi are in hot pink.
For those looking for high ground as we start to flood this spring, there is also an elevation map that includes some river data. We know several midwestern states are already in trouble, and the rest of March is not going to be great:
Both of these maps give clues to flow-through and land that will end up underwater as global climate change accelerates. Minnesota is likely to stay mostly land-mass, but as such it becomes a target for those people whose land will be gone.
