MIAMI, the United States, Sept. 13 (Xinhua ) -- Lifelong Miami resident Karina Castillo remembered clearly a clear, sunny day last year John Miller Rush Jersey , when high tides flooded a street in a local neighborhood.

"I was standing in water during high tide, on the street, and the water was still knee deep," she said.

That was many months before Hurricane Irma ravaged the city and made streets look like rivers, as the massive storm hit the city of Miami in the U.S. state of Florida over the weekend and grabbed nationwide headlines.

But experts said that hurricanes are not the main threat to the low-lying city, as rising sea levels threaten to put communities permanently under water.

For the first time in recorded history, ocean levels are rising Shaq Lawson Rush Jersey , after being stable for the last 5,000 or 6,000 years. The U.S. National Ocean Service said global sea levels will likely continue to rise, and Miami residents said flooding due to rising sea level has worsened over the years.

High tides -- sometimes called king tides -- even on clear, sunny days, can cause floodwaters to seep upward to street level through Miami's drainage system. That's because the city is built on a bed of limestone, which is porous and allows water to seep upward to street level.

For communities in Miami Dion Dawkins Rush Jersey , flooding, even by a few feet, can have a serious impact. Flooded streets can cause businesses to shutter for days at a time, impacting their bottom line, as well as employees' paychecks.

The elderly are particularly impacted, as they can miss important doctors' appointment or treatments, if vehicles are unable to traverse flooded streets to pick them up.

During one recent instance of flooding Zay Jones Rush Jersey , police vehicles were unable to access one area, as their cars' warranties did not cover water damage that would likely occur from driving through knee-deep waters.

That can impact an area's safety, and floodwaters can also impact the ability of first responders get to people in an emergency. A woman in a flooded neighborhood was unable to get her regular dialysis treatments, Castillo said.

Flooding can, in some instances, cause sewer water to come up to street level, sprinkling flooded areas with human excrement and threatening to spread disease.

Describing that day many months ago Tre'Davious White Rush Jersey , Castillo said: "The sun was beating down on me, and (the flooding) was not due to rain. It was because of high tides and water coming in from the river and also through our drains on the street."

Residents say it's gotten worse over the years, and experts said that could continue as sea levels rise here and worldwide. Eventually, flooding could become more than just an annoyance, and take a significant toll.

"It's something that's happened in the last five years, that we're seeing an increase in the magnitude and the frequency of king tide flooding areas of Miami Beach and the community of Brickell," she said Kelvin Benjamin Rush Jersey , referring to Miami's downtown area.

"Sea level rise has kind of transformed some of the communities in southeast Florida, and really all along the coast of Florida," she said.

"Particularly in areas where there's poor infrastructure and poor drainage of our sewer systems," she said.
