Study: Global warming will bring more intense downpours
Indeed, much of the Northern Hemisphere will be subject to more extreme rain events because of increasing levels of greenhouse gases, according to a study conducted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and published in Geophysical Research Letters.

Our Northwest, on the east side of the Pacific Ocean, has had changing intensifying weather for decades, like the UK & Europe on the east side of the Atlantic Ocean....... oh..... like many regions on the planet.

Wow.. Who's against volunteering for Fargo? They need help, folks.
They're getting these floods more often now, like every 4-5 years.

One news article said they've had several years in a row of sand bagging. The school kids from towns affected by floods are filling sand bags right now. They got some machine that really helps to fill the bags. But they are trying to get 1 million sand bags ready for the floods....... which just might not be enough.
We used to help the farms around our Pacific Northwest. After the floods started going down, all the wet hay in the barns had to be outloaded. If not, the hay would spontaneously catch fire from the growth of organisms that create heat, burning barns down.

Researchers used climate models to focus on how increases in greenhouse gas
affect rainfall and winds. Their findings could impact how engineers will design dams, culverts, detention ponds and other water control structures in the future.
Thomas Karl, director of the National Climatic Center and the study’s co-author, said the next challenge is to find ways to avoid potential disasters associated with heavy rains.
“Findings of this study, and others like it,
lead to new information for engineers and developers that will save lives,” he said.
Yes and if it dosen't rain it "could lead to a dry climate. Gee more scientific science fiction scare tacticis. Got more scientific science fiction?

At least,'brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver' tried math calculations, tho only a few attempts ended in errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES & 73 million TIMES.'fetid feces face flip flopper fiend' has never attempted math calculations, which prove that its proficiency in math is worse than that of 'brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver'.
