Coastal homes and businesses threatened by high tide flooding

This is something we've known for years though. I remember reading about this somewhere about 10 years ago. Is this just now being taken seriously?

Short-sighted policies and market drivers will need to be phased-out to discourage risky behavior and to ensure changes won’t be too jarring on homeowners and the real estate market.

Most cities recognize the situation at this point and are doing everything they can to try to beat back the rising tides. But seas will continue to rise as warmer oceans expand and glaciers melt. It's likely that neighborhoods and even some cities will be uninhabitable far sooner than many think.

Is this affecting real estate prices yet? I somehow think cities will start creating underwater areas instead of evacuating.
