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.
