    At least the car batteries are back in the ocean where they belong

  6. SuperEnthusiastic says:

    This is a result of the heatwaves that have been happening around the world. Sudden heatwave means high evaporation in a short period of time, which means more water in the air which means a humongous downpour elsewhere in the planet.

    Global warming. Hurray.

  7. Ryoukugan says:

    I hope people understand that these sorts of things are going to be getting a *lot* more common in coming years. Global warming isn’t just “it gets hotter”, it’s “the warmer temperature causes all sorts of fuckery with weather all over the world”.

  8. topsyturvy76 says:

    Holy hell ! How many deaths reported so far ?

  9. Gilffanclub says:

    200 mm = 7.8 inches for us Americans who don’t know how to metric

  10. baloonatic says:

    This cannot be good for the foundations of these buildings…

    Earth will be fine, this is just how it will remove us.

  14. forgottenatma says:

    You know how the start of every disaster movie shows how a bunch of isolated incidents became more and more frequent and that humans should have noticed this huge disaster waiting to happen?

    Yeah, we’re in that scene now.

  15. morcunmindy says:

    Remember when climate scientists told us years ago that climate change would mean more extreme weather events and precipitation that would normally be stretch out over days would fall within hours?

  16. BrotineShakeNbake says:

    Damn earth has had it with our shit!

  17. What the fuck is happening with the world

  18. Is it just me or have there been a lot more floods than normal recently?

  21. BuchoVagabond says:

    This was nearest transportation hub for Dengfeng, home of the old Shaolin Temple. I went there to train in 2007. Am wondering if the temple survived the flooding but I’m too worried to look for news!

  22. Stonyclaws says:

    Interesting that this shit not only gets worse every year but ALOT worse every year. The misanthrope in me says the bill is coming due sooner than we think.

  23. R_Charles_Gallagher says:

    its the end of the world as we know it

  24. Humans: CLIMATE CHANGE DOES NOT EXIST! THEY ARE ONLY SCARING US SO WE STOP WITH THE POLLUTION BUT THERE IS NO REAL THREAT!
    Earth:

  25. DanScott7 says:

    Honestly, this is Mother Nature giving us a message. A CLEAR message. But no, people decided to ignore it!

  28. Strength-InThe-Loins says:

    These last few weeks very strongly remind me of the first 30 minutes or so of The Day After Tomorrow.

  29. Can northern Canada get some of that rain

    *insert Dave Chapelle meme*

  30. A few more coal power stations should sort it out

  31. boyinblack0000 says:

    Everything is just covered in concrete, no land left to soak the water in

  32. God damn it. The whole world is sinking.
