AMERICA'S COASTAL AREAS FACING A CRISIS

BOSTON, Massachusetts, November 6, 2001 (ENS) - America's coastal states,
the states bordering the Great Lakes, and the Pacific and Caribbean island
territories, are experiencing increasingly severe coastal erosion and a
variety of other coastal hazards, say researchers from the U.S. Geological
Survey (USGS).

Most of the hazards are natural, but unwise coastal development and poorly
designed manmade alterations have increased the risk of damage to life and
property.
