Britain Testing Amphibious Home

United Kingdom (WIBX) - In the wake of Super Storm Sandy, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo called for more than $40 billion to help in the clean up effort.

But, with the weather becoming more violent every year, countries across the globe are attempting to adapt to higher water levels and more violent storms.

In this story from Popular Science, the British Environment Agency is testing out an amphibious house that floats when water levels rise too high. When the floods recede, the house settles back down into its original spot.

A drawing of the prototype home can be seen here, along with more information.
