Rising waters threaten Louisiana

Levees can no longer protect the land, leading to whole communities being abandoned.

    The southern coast of Louisiana in the United States is among the fastest disappearing areas in the world.

    Rising waters have led to the state losing a land mass equivalent to 30 football fields every day.

    And as the communities disappear, more and more people are leaving the region.

    Nick Clark reports from Louisiana.
