Floods in Malaysian states may end only in March –

WORST FLOODING IN [more than] 30 YEARS


The flood today is even bigger than in 1986. The water rose very fast. In less than two hours, water had entered our house.

The rain and flooding is incredible around here also. But folks do not build (are not forced to build) in flood plains. We don't have to. We are wealthy Americans.

The worst that happens are a few drowned cows.

Just out of curiosity, why do we have a thread about floods in a peak oil forum? Or about hurricanes, droughts, heat waves, cold winters, rain patterns changing, etc. etc. etc.?

No time to track down all the links right now (easily searchable for the curious), but California, NZ, Peru, Ecuador and a few other places all seem to be having extreme rain events now or in the last few days/weeks.

Here's something on the Ecuadoran situation: http://www.eldiario.ec/temas/Invierno-Manabí-2017/

It's absolutely bucketing down here in Tauranga and the main part of the storm is only 1-2 hours out. The flood protection behind the house is already half full, so I am wondering if I might be getting wet feet before the end of the night.

Climate change -- and overbuilt levees, and land-use changes -- have led to multiple recent floods around St. Louis, Missouri.

Two catastrophic floods in less than two years wasn't just a case of bad luck

Residents of waterlogged communities along the Meramec River and other swollen area waterways have experienced something unusual for the region.

In a span of just 16 months, the people of cities like Eureka, Pacific and Valley Park have twice braced for and dealt with so-called “100-year” floods that have left damage, financial loss and heartache in their wake. Now, as the floodwater recedes in some communities, residents are left wondering how soon the next catastrophic flood will arrive.

Also many areas in British Columbia are experiencing flooding now, in the Okanagan Valley, further north in the central interior, and in the northwest and northeast of the province:

An article about the Quebec flooding and what climate change is likely to bring to the region and the rest of Canada:

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/nat ... e34953478/

What happened between the top and bottom of the river during those three days is something that system managers say they were helpless to prevent or mitigate.

“It’s just an unprecedented event,” says Mr. Sarich. “So then it becomes a problem of people in the floodplain, and that’s just a more difficult question.”



“These are the types of events brought by climate change that climatologists have been predicting for 30 years – they’re just starting to show themselves now,” says Adam Fenech, who heads the University of Prince Edward Island’s climate lab.


“Flooding is the elephant in the room for Canada,” says Dr. Feltmate. “That is the most challenging aspect of climate change – and the most costly to the country.”


And if there’s one message that Canadians should be taking away from the Ottawa River flood of 2017 it’s this, Dr. Feltmate said:

“These floods we’re realizing now are small compared to what’s coming.”

Heavy prolonged rain in Thailand is nothing new. For centuries Thais have built their houses elevated on stilts as occasional flooding is expected.

Image

However most modern homes, around Bangkok especially are built on natural marsh / wet lands and now flood regularly. Concrete has replaced marsh and the water has to go somewhere. My wife's sisters house near the old airport was flooded a few years ago (along with millions of others) - not a catastrophe though as all the electrics are high up the concrete walls, floors are marble so just a jetwash & repaint. Furniture was removed upstairs beforehand.

The old airport at Don Muang flooded badly

Image

And the new airport at Suwannaphum came very close indeed to flooding.

At least the trains run through the floods - they use Diesel Hydraulic locos - no electricity to short out !!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wr-b9JbUnVg

Bangkok will disappear under water one day in the non to distant future - yet still they build.

And we Brits get rattled a bit by the Atlantic now & again.

Huge amounts of rainfall in parts of Taiwan on 02 June resulted in major flooding and mudslides in northern areas of the country. Some areas of New Taipei City recorded more than 600 mm of rain in under 12 hours.
