Alexandria is a Mediterranean port city and has a long history of coastal and flash flooding. But, the rising temperature in recent years has brought frequent and severe storms to the city. The government has initiated a flood action project to mitigate the impacts of floods in the city.


Alexandria is a Mediterranean port city in Egypt; was the capital of Egypt from its founding by Alexander the Great in 332 BCE. During the Hellenistic period, it was home to a lighthouse ranking among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World as well as a storied library. Today the library is reincarnated in the disc-shaped, ultramodern Bibliotheca Alexandrina. The city has Greco-Roman landmarks, old-world cafes and sandy beaches and the 15th-century seafront Qaitbay Citadel is now a museum.
