Climate changes are expected to increase the severity of storms that can wreak havoc on low-lying areas like the Dry Tortugas, a cluster of desert islands 70 miles off Key West.

Mark Hedden from Here & Now contributor WLRN recently visited the islands on an expedition to find the only American crocodile seen there since the Spanish explorer and conquistador Ponce de Leon arrived in 1513.
