"This Thing Isn't Over Yet": Officials Warn Flooding in Mississippi and Tennessee to Continue

My sympathies.
Also, my warning: Climate chaos has you in its sights.

The bad news: These floods are just the tip of the spear.
The good news: Climate chaos is an equal opportunity destroyer.

Has anyone seen how high the Great Lakes are getting?

Sometimes people make a mistake in thinking it’s the depth of the flood instead of paying attention to the frequency. How about getting a foot of water in your house every three years like clockwork?

I wonder if, when the water has risen far above their heads, climate change deniers will look up to the surface of the water and exclaim, “It’s a Chinese hoax.”? Someone should tell Imhofe that snowballs melt underwater.

It is amazing how short a time 500 years really is these days.

i’m lucky to be on the gulf for this one, sitting out the worst of it.

i’m sure one of the super hurricanes will get us eventually. I’m only 3 blocks from the beach…:))

Yup, my sister lives in Evanston. I go there regularly, and we take walks along the shore of Lake Michigan. What used to be walkways next to long stretches of beach are now right at the water line. We may have to raise Chicago another eight to ten feet to maintain sewer service for the next ten years. After that, with temps near 70 in Antarctica, all bets are off.

Lots of damage there - still rebuilding?

from Katrina? that stuff’s largely permanent.

Highest in the past 30 years.
High temps at the poles could be devastating.

Fall and Winter of 1976, I lived in Beauvoir Beach Apts, across the street to the west of
the Beauvoir house. I was going to school at Keesler for cross-training.
