Living in a village that's sinking into the sea

(Updated: )

In Sitio Pariahan in the Philippines, villagers attend Sunday mass in a flooded church, while all roads have vanished underwater. The sinking village is situated on Manila Bay, where a combination of climate change, rise in sea level, the disappearance of mangrove swamps and land subsidence has made the area increasingly prone to floods and typhoon damage.
