Ever wonder if your home will be consumed by the all-encompassing rage of the Atlantic Ocean? Look no further.

Eyes on the Rise, an app created by students from Florida International University, shows how the southern part of the state could flood if the oceans continue to rise in the coming years as a result of climate change, the Biscayne Times reported.

Users can type in their address and adjust the sea-level sliding scale to see if and when their home or business could go underwater. While this may not be as much of an issue for us in Orlando, Miami and the rest of South Florida will definitely want to take a peek.

You can try the app on their website here.
