As Water Levels Rise, Historic Islands In Chesapeake Bay Slowly Disappear

BISHOPS HEAD, MARYLAND - NOVEMBER 12: In this aerial view, Crab Point reaches out into the water where the Honga River empties into the Chesapeake Bay on November 12, 2022 near Bishops Head, Maryland. Local watermen said there was a stand of 25 or more trees on Crab Point only ten years ago but rising salt water and quickly eroding soil have wiped out the trees and shrunk the point. According to some estimates, the water level in the Chesapeake Bay could rise by as much as 2 feet by 2050, submerging almost half of Dorchester County, home to watermen and farming communities since its settlement in the mid 17th century.
