    Subtropical Storm Alberto Strengthens Ahead of Landfall in the Florida Panhandle; Flooding, Storm Surge, Damaging Winds Possible

    A once in a thousand year storm two out of three years.

    Lot's of named storms, even this big one in May. When does that happen?

    There'll be tornadoes. You can count on it.

    Thank God for Republicans telling us it's all made up and there is no such thing as climate change.

    I feel better already.

    A once in a thousand year flood does NOT mean you will only have one of them in a thousand years idiot.
    It MEANS in one thousand years you will have AT LEAST ONE.
    You fuckin retard.

    Who of any importance has said "there's no such thing as climate change"?

    Climate always changes. The dispute is over whether the cause is anthropogenic, or merely cyclical.

    That the proponents of anthropogenic change continually post modified data, fantastical data, or alternatively omit actual data does not strengthen their argument.

    That catastrophe was caused by city/county planning engineering blunders. Storm waters have to go someplace. Point them towards main street and that is where they will go.

    The climate never changes, that's why my Chicago neighborhood is still under a mile of ice.

    Let's face it....those all in with the climate alarmists tend to the hysterical on much of life. We have a regular member in this forum.... every time there is a forest fire somewhere his head explodes. Fortunately most people aren't that way and don't go diving for cover every time there's a flood somewhere:th_beback:

    Deanie is in the Dark Ages of information. BECAUSE he's nothing but a partisan shill.. The Left enviro-nuts WORSHIP GW as some kind of demon for which sacrifices must be made. INSTEAD of actually doing any work to check and study the gossip and misinformation that the Church of Global Warming preaches...

    1000 year flood my ass... :rolleyes: It gets WORSE as you take away forests and grasslands and small streams and NORMAL drainage down that road grade.. THAT"s your problem...

    Why Ellicott City is prone to flooding

    Being located next to the Patapsco River and other nearby rivers, plus being in a valley, makes the city especially vulnerable to catastrophic flash floods.

    The flooding this Memorial Day weekend was the 15th recorded catastrophic flood in Ellicott City. A little background: The city was first settled in 1766 by James Hood. The grist mill he built on the land was destroyed in 1768, yes, by flood waters. :113:

    Ellicott City, Maryland - Wikipedia
    History
    Floods
    The town is prone to flooding from the Patapsco River and its tributary the Tiber River. These floods have had a major impact on the history of the town, often destroying important businesses and killing many. Ellicott City has had major devastating floods in 1817, 1837, 1868,[5] 1901, 1917, 1923, 1938, 1942, 1952, 1956, 1972 (Hurricane Agnes), 1975 (Hurricane Eloise), 1989, 2011, 2016, and 2018. The 1868 flood washed away 14 houses, killing 39 to 43 (accounts vary) in and around Ellicott City. It wiped out the Granite Manufacturing Cotton Mill, Charles A. Gambrill's Patapsco Mill, John Lee Carroll's mill buildings, and dozens of homes.[5] One mill was rebuilt by Charles Gambrill, which remained in operation until a fire in 1916.[6]:36

    Ellicott City, Maryland - Wikipedia

    Historic flood stages marked on the B&O viaduct, c. 2006. Hurricane Agnes flood stage (14.5 feet (4.4 m)) is in the middle of the photograph.
    A 1923 flood topped bridges, in 1952 an 8-foot (2.4 m) wall of water swept the shops of Ellicott City, and a 1956 flood inflicted heavy damage at the Bartigis Brothers plant. On June 21, 1972, the Patapsco River valley flooded 14.5 feet (4.4 m) from the remnants of Hurricane Agnes, taking out a concrete bridge, destroying the Jonathan Ellicott home, and the 1910 Victor Blode water filtration plant, and flooding Main Street to the Odd Fellows hall.[6]:26 The Old Main Line of the B&O Railroad also sustained serious damage.

    On September 27, 1975, the town was flooded 9.0 feet (2.7 m) from Hurricane Eloise. Floods also occurred September 22, 1989, from Hurricane Hugo, and on September 7, 2011, flooding 11.0 feet (3.4 m) from Tropical Storm Lee.
