Washington D.C. is Sinking

A new study released Tuesday shows that the District of Columbia is sinking, and projects that the city could drop by more than six inches over the next 100 years.

The research, conducted by geologists from the University of Vermont, makes clear the land sinking around the national capital isn’t being caused by human influence, but is instead caused by land resettling after being propped up by pre-historic ice sheets.
