As mod of /s/news, I'm removing this post from this sub because it's not news.

It sounds like it is hinting at news, but I have no idea which news it is referring to.

Why 2030? And why Mexico City specifically? What is the news here?

8 more feet of sink should about do the city in, LA is the closest port in a storm

Mexico City, the worlds’ third largest city with 18.7 million people, is sinking far more than experts had originally predicted.

In the last 100 years, parts of Mexico City have sunk as much as forty-two feet. This sinking has caused considerable damage to buildings, roads, and critical infrastructure.

You can’t raise the city again,” said hydraulic engineer Ramón Domínguez. “The only hope is to stop it from sinking further.”

Mexico City is sinking about eight inches a year and construction crews are scrambling to save the city from flooding, the most imminent danger posed by sinking.

Ariel Flores, water-reuse manager for the National Water Commission, warns of the potential dangers, saying, “[Flooding] would paralyze the economy of the entire country. It would be a total disaster. Imagine the Congress, the stock exchange, the country’s biggest airport, everything under water.”

Where will the people go ?
