This is a modern problem.

In "primitive times", the move would have been a normal part of life as permanence of settlement wasn't a thing for these and other peoples.

I grew up on a Pacific island where we lived in a bamboo and thatched hut. We had flooding and earthquakes and storms. People simply moved and rebuilt somewhere else.

Sea levels are rising, and have been rising even before there was this idea of AGW. It has happened before and will again. People will adjust. The difference is that we now have billions of people living along waterways. But the slow pace of sea level rise will allow people to adjust. As we always have.
