In contrast to 609mm of rain, Nina dropped 1631mm in one day, including 830mm in just six hours.

If these events happened today, there would be immediate calls for world socialism.

 

 

FOOTNOTE

Eric Holthaus says he is a meteorologist and climate journalist. It seems he is not a very good one!
