WashPost String of floods raise climate change questions
  1. Call it the spring of flash floods. Rare and deadly flash flooding events have struck several parts of the south-central U.S. from Tennessee to Oklahoma this spring, with two remarkable events occurring in just the past five days: the astounding six-to-ten-inch gully washer that resulted in numerous swift-water rescues in Oklahoma City yesterday morning, and the tragic deluge in rural Arkansas late last week.
  2. One might think the rainfall was extremely unusual, even unprecedented. However, the approximately 6.83 inches of rain that fell in 24 hours in the Arkansas event was actually a 1-in-10-year event with respect to the 24-hour rainfall total (it may have been rarer if one were to examine historical six-hour precipitation data). A confluence of factors made the the heavy rain so deadly -- most of it fell in just a few hours, in an area primed for rapid rises in small rivers, creeks and streams, while a large and vulnerable population of campers was sleeping in a remote area.
  3. A gauge maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey reveals that the Little Missouri River climbed almost 20 feet in just a few hours at the nearby town of Langley. At 2 a.m. central time the river was at 3.81 feet, and by 5:30 a.m. it reached a whopping 23.39 feet. This exceeded the previous highest flood in that location by about 10 feet!
  4. The Tennessee and Oklahoma rainstorms were far more unusual than the Arkansas flood. The Tennessee event, in which 13 to 19 inches of rain fell during a two-day period, flooding much of the state including downtown Nashville, was around a 1-in-1,000-year event. And the Oklahoma City floods yesterday were a 1-in-100-year event. Some areas in and around Oklahoma City eclipsed their monthly average rainfall totals for June in under 12 hours.
  5. When an extreme event occurs, a reporter is often caught in a quandary. If we overplay the causal link between climate change and the event, then we can rightly be accused of being alarmist...
  6. Yet, if journalists ignore the scientific studies that show that some types of extreme events are consistent with what is expected due to climate change, then we may be guilty of a sin of omission
