Tuvalu Flooded in Google Earth

Tuvalu is a Pacific island famous for being vulnerable to global warming induced sea level rise. I've discovered in Google Earth, its already sunk a long way! A case of the model of the sea floor not being accurate enough in Google Earth. See more in this tour (needs GEarth v5+).

Other Sunken Islands: Previously I spotted the Scilly islands were underwater off the coast of Cornwall.
