Almost a month after the U.S. announced its exit from the Paris Climate Agreement, a new study has come up with the list of cities that are likely to get affected in the next hundred years if immediate steps are not taken.

According to a study released Wednesday, cities along the Jersey Shore and in parts of North Carolina, South Louisiana, and neighboring areas that have been known as vulnerable from years are expected to be inundated by 2035.
