A “rain bomb” over Arizona, 2017

“Rain bomb” closeup, 2017

I ran across this website last year after the flooding of Baton Rouge, La. The flooding issues that we are experiencing almost weekly in the U.S. are happening all over the world, and almost every time we hear the same story: Major flooding in areas that never flood; Unprecedented amounts of rain; Record amounts of water dropped from the sky within hours; Deaths and loss of property; Rain dropped like a bomb; This is the new climate change reality, etc.

This website is alarming in their headlines such as this one: “Flood Losses in Europe to Increase Fivefold by 2050.” Note that they don’t talk about human casualties, only property damage, as if the insurance companies are the only ones really worried.
