Weather Underground had an interesting story a week ago about a terrible weather-related disaster that killed between 100,000 and 230,000 people in China in August 1975. Most of you have probably never heard about it since news reports in the US were quite thin. It’s especially timely this year because high rain amounts and a tropical storm have caused significant problems on many rivers in the Southeast. Sadly, a number of people have died here in accidents related to high water in the last couple of weeks, but nothing like the devastation in this flood in China.
