It seems like we’re seeing a lot of this lately. Weather seemed go ‘rogue’ starting in the 90s and is only picking up the pace.

    1. Just nature giving a big “fuck you” to humanity. Not like we don’t deserve it. Very sad.


    2. This has been going forever, nothing new or unusual. It’s just now everyone everywhere has a camera to record these normal occurances.


    3. Well actually.. I live in the Philippines and this shit was not the usual storm that I’m used to. I live kinda near that 4th picture (place called Marikina) and that flood was something that I have never experienced b4 in my entire life.. guess maybe global warming is finally starting to kick our ass..


    4. Here’s a 5 most deadly naturally occuring floodings known in the world;

      1931 Huang He (Yellow) River, China
      Death Toll: 1,000,000 to 3,700,000

      1887 Huang He (Yellow) River, China
      Death Toll: 900,000 to 2,000,000

      1931 Yangtze River, China
      Death Toll: 145,000

      1066 The Netherlands and England
      Death Toll: 100,000

      1824 The Neva River, Russia
      Death Toll: 10,000

      This old planet has been throwing all kinds of shit at humanity for thousands of years and this is nothing new. It’s just now we know instantly when something happens, no matter the scale, with pictures and video available within seconds via the internet. You are no more special than those back in 1099 or 1934, it just that now you KNOW when things occur.


      • Yes, hurricanes and floods are not new – however;

        Roughly twice as many hurricanes are now reported in the Atlantic compared to a century ago. The rise, identified by Greg Holland (NCAR), occurred over three distinct periods associated with rises in sea-surface temperature

        In both the North Atlantic and North Pacific oceans, the duration of tropical cyclones as well as their strongest wind speeds have both increased by about 50% over the past 50 years ( Kerry Emanuel, Massachusetts Institute of Technology )

        The number of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes worldwide nearly doubled from the early 1970s to the early 2000s. (Georgia Institute of Technology and NCAR)
