With the rise in the temperature of the atmosphere, there is a relative rise in the temperature of oceans. This in turn causes more and more glaciers and sea ice to melt, which in turn causes sea levels to rise, flooding many coastal regions leading to loss of property and life.

This passage is from the article in a school textbook. I'm confused with the writing "... flooding many coastal regions leading to loss of property and life". I think it should be "... flooding many coastal regions and leading to loss of property and life". If it is not correct, how should I write? Thanks in advance.
