In the wake of the annual sunny-day flooding during king tides in South Florida, more than 350 residents recently gathered for a screening of a National Geographic documentary on climate change.

The Miami-based episode of season two of NatGeo’s series “Years of Living Dangerously” was screened before a full house at Little Havana’s Tower Theater on Oct. 27. The episode, starring actor/musician Jack Black as a correspondent exploring the local sentiment on sea level rise, focuses on the region’s vulnerability amid global warming and sea-level rise.

Hosted by 17-year-old student activist Delaney Reynolds of The Sink or Swim Project (www.miamisearise.com) and the CLEO Institute (www.cleoinstitute.org), the film premiere event also served to recognize local activists, scientists, and public officials who played a role in the Miami production of NatGeo’s episode two, “Gathering Storm.”

The annual king tides are rising in South Florida, causing some flooding in coastal areas.
