"Central China's Henan witnesses heaviest rainfall in 60 years; at least 1 dead, 2 missing"
https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202107/1229173.shtml

"The maximum precipitation in Zhengzhou reached 201.9 millimeters per hour, breaking the previous record of 198.5 millimeters in 1975, according to the national meteorological observatory.

From 8 pm Saturday to 8 pm Tuesday, precipitation in Zhengzhou had reached 617.1 millimeters with hourly and daily precipitation both breaking 60-year records, according to media reports.

The average yearly precipitation in Zhengzhou is 640.8 millimeters.

The rain was induced by Typhoon In-Fa, experts said."

Holy crap! 201.9 mm per hour is a lot of rain! That is 8 inches of rain per hour to you non metric Americans. And then almost a year's worth of rain in 4 days, with even more rain forecasted for tomorrow! Holy crap! I guess the gods must be pissing on us! :lol:

Central Chinese province swamped after heaviest rain in 1,000 years
The lives of millions of people in Henan have been upended since the weekend in an unusually active rainy season that has led to the rapid rise of a number of rivers in the vast Yellow River basin.

Many train services across Henan, a major logistics hub in central China, have been suspended. Many highways have also been closed and flights delayed or cancelled.

Roads in a dozen populous cities have been flooded. Videos on social media showed residents, their arms interlocked, wading across streets in fast-moving water. One video showed an adult and a child being swept away on a major artery choked with half-submerged vehicles.

From the evening of Saturday until late Tuesday, 617.1 millimetres (mm) of rain had drenched Zhengzhou - almost on par with the city's annual average of 640.8 mm.

That was before climate changed.

Thanks to global warming we are going to see these kinds of large flooding events much more frequently in the future.

More CO2 in the atmosphere means more global warming and that means more flooding and other climate disasters

Turkey: cars float down flooded streets as residents rescued – video

Rescuers pulled inflatable boats in flood waters gushing through streets of Turkey's Black Sea district of Arhavi on Thursday to bring those stranded to safety.

Footage released by the country's interior ministry showed distressed residents being evacuated from flooded homes. Access to dozens of villages in Arhavi were blocked and rescue efforts were under way - with officials saying 200 people had been evacuated.

Floods are common along Turkey's Black Sea coastal region at this time of year. Last week, at least six people were killed and two others went missing in flood waters in Black Sea province of Rize

Nonseasonal floods kill 14 people in south and east of Yemen
The storms are not seasonal for the south and the east of Yemen, which is usually dry this time of year.
The country’s northwestern highlands experience seasonal rain from late spring through early fall.
The storms also damaged crops, roads, and telecommunications infrastructure.

Flash floods, lightning take 8 lives nationwide

Seven people were killed by floods and another one was killed by lightning in 16 provinces, Mahdi Valipour, an official with the Iranian Red Crescent Society, said on Friday.

More than 200 rescue and relief groups are working in 61 counties affected by natural disasters, he noted.

The IRCS forces have provided relief for some 5,000 people, accommodating 835 ones in shelters and relocating 58 others to safe regions.

The Climate Crisis Could Overwhelm Subway Systems

Swift, deadly flooding in China this week inundated a network that wasn’t even a decade old, highlighting the risks faced by cities globally.

Terrified passengers trapped in flooded subway cars in Zhengzhou, China. Water cascading down stairways into the London Underground. A woman wading through murky, waist-deep water to reach a New York City subway platform.
Subway systems around the world are struggling to adapt to an era of extreme weather brought on by climate change. Their designs, many based on the expectations of another era, are being overwhelmed, and investment in upgrades could be squeezed by a drop in ridership brought on by the pandemic.


The recent flooding is yet another example of the kind of extreme weather that is consistent with changing climate around the world.
Just days before the China subway nightmare, floods in Germany killed some 160 people. Major heat waves have brought misery to Scandinavia, Siberia and Pacific Northwest in the United States. Wildfires in the American West and Canada sent smoke across the continent this past week and triggered health alerts in cities like Toronto, Philadelphia and New York City, giving the sun an eerie reddish tinge.
Flash floods have inundated roads and highways in recent weeks, as well. The collapse of a portion of California’s Highway 1 into the Pacific Ocean after heavy rains this year was a reminder of the fragility of the nation’s roads.
But more intense flooding poses a particular challenge to aging subway systems in some of the world’s largest cities.
In New York, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority has invested $2.6 billion in resiliency projects since Hurricane Sandy swamped the city’s subway system in 2012, including fortifying 3,500 subway vents, staircases and elevator shafts against flooding. Even on a dry day, a network of pumps pours out about 14 million gallons, mainly groundwater, from the system. Still, flash flooding this month showed that the system remains vulnerable.

Any upgrades are a can kick, but there's not much choice since the plebs will never accept any form of triage that costs them & few are capable of imagining all or parts of their cities ruined & abandoned in their lifetime. It's going to happen. Look for a real estate rush to the exits in S Florida. It could act like a first domino falling causing them all to fall up & down the eastern seaboard. What does a trillion dollars worth of coastal property devalued in short order do to the economy? There's probably no worse place for Sea Level Rise than the eastern seaboard.

Rising Seas Are Flooding Norfolk Naval Base, and There’s No Plan to Fix It

The giant naval base in Virginia is under threat by rising seas and sinking land, but little is being done to hold back the tides.

“It’s not supposed to be a pond,” said Joe Bouchard, a retired captain and former base commander. “It is now.”


Rising seas threaten Norfolk Naval Shipyard, raising fears of 'catastrophic damage'

“Every year you wait to make decisions and take actions, the risk goes up," said retired Rear Adm. Jonathan White.

In the past 10 years, Norfolk Naval Shipyard has suffered nine major floods that have damaged equipment used to repair ships, and the flooding is worsening, according to the Navy. In 2016, rain from Hurricane Matthew left 2 feet of water in one building, requiring nearly $1.2 million in repairs.

German floods destroy rails and train stations

The devastating floods in western Germany have hit the infrastructure of German rail operator Deutsche Bahn hard. The company estimates it has suffered €1.3 billion worth of damage. Some routes are so badly damaged that they must be rebuilt.

Better build back better, because more & worse will strike again. All new infrastructure must be Hulk proof - Climate Smash!

Roy Spencer - denier clown. Almost all of the professional deniers have moved on - damage done. Obviously not all the amateur, true believer, denier disciples got the 'Going Out Of Business & 'Thank You For Your Service' memos. Or maybe they did get the memos, but like Linus with his security blanket, they are unable to function without it. Hey, if the cost of making it through another day requires one to continue to embarrass themselves then so be it.

Now back to your regularly scheduled Doom, with an update on the AGW Jacked Hydrologic system.

A Warming Earth Will Bring More Extreme Rainfall, New Research Shows

This month has seen widespread flooding on almost every continent, from the U.S. to China, from India to Italy, in extraordinary events that climate scientists say have been made more extreme by human-induced climate change. The World Meteorological Association says global mean surface temperatures are already 1.2 degrees Celsius higher than the pre-industrial average.

But research by the Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the UK Meteorological (Met) Office, published today in the journal Science Advances, indicates that most communities will experience even more extreme wet conditions with each degree of temperature rise.


So it’s not that countries will necessarily have much more rain on average; it’s that we’ll see rain events becoming heavier and less predictable.

The research also implies that rather than floods necessarily becoming more frequent, heavier rainfall could make them more destructive.

Redundant research, but folks need to get paid eh? I feel that continued research on climate is unnecessary since the humans have proven they are unable to change their behaviour to avoid a threat that could very well end them. From an entertainment perspective, I'm all for the research because I'm curious & enjoy learning, so for me it's a very expensive dopamine hit (I'm worth it). All of the energy/money is getting reduced one way or another. Send another scum-bag oligarch to space (sort of) or build more nukes or fund more research - it's all the same to our Lord & Slaver the MPP. As long as you are doing your part to reduce gradients the Lord blesses you.
