Photo by Vlad Sokhin @lens_pacific for @everydayclimatechange | Jorlang Jorlang, 70, a resident of Jenrok village in the Marshall Islands, lays on his bed while his wife Tita is finishing hanging laundry. In April 2014 “Kind Tide” hit their house and the seawater came inside. Their family ran away, but Jorlang couldn’t move, due to his disability. His wife had to stay with him for two days and wait until the water was gone. With an elevation in most areas less then two meters above seal level, Jenrok community is one of the most vulnerable on the Majuro Atoll. #climatechange #globalwarming #climatechangeisreal #Oceania #Micronesia #Pacific #Marshallislands #Majuro #cemetery #sealevelrising @panospictures
