sea level coverage

Hi

I need to calculate areas that will be flooded along the coastline with certain intervals of sea level rise. I have a DEM of the my study area, which I re-classed into my sea level intervals (eg 5m 10m 20m). My problem is with some low lying areas that becomes flooded before the sea level would reach that area (i.e. there is some elevated areas between the coast and the low lying areas).

How do I change these low lying areas to be part of the next sea level of interest, at which level the elevated area would be flooded as well.
Hope this makes sense.

regards
Wilhelm
