A new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has dire warnings for India, which is already going through an unpredictable upheaval in weather patterns and environmental factors.

The cities could be nearly three feet underwater by the century's end. The cities include Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi, and Visakhapatnam, among others.
