Majority of islands in Maldives sit only less than a meter to two meters above sea level. This is the very reason why soon enough, it could disappear from the Earth. Due to global warming, the sea level is gradually rising, which could affect not only the stunning Maldives but also the Arctic and other popular tourist destinations like Venice.

Maldives was affected during the December 2004 tsunami.

The disastrous 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami claimed the lives of thousands and has badly affected Thailand and Indonesia, among others. Maldives was also affected that time as the same catastrophe swallowed two-thirds of the island nation.

The Earth continues to suffer from the effects of climate change, with sea levels rising more noticeably than before as a result of the glaciers and icebergs melting. If this trend continues, Maldives is predicted to be completely submerged in thirty years’ time.
