South Florida Running Out of Sand

South Florida's eroding beaches have been happening for a while but now it's becoming a serious problem. The state known for it's sunny beaches are running out of sand fast due to erosion from storms and tides, a rising sea level and man-made structures like jetties that have been built on beaches, causing sand to build up on only one side of the structure.

According to the New York Times, the Florida communities have been replenishing their beaches by dredging up off shore sand for decades. Even the sand gathered from that, however, is quickly disappearing as well. 

Watch the video below to to see what solution the State of Florida has come up with to solve their sand problem.
