In terms of collapse and chronicling what is ongoing though, it's a issue fo FREQUENCY & SEVERITY.  How often are these events occuring and how bad are they where they occur?  How badly is this disrupting the lives of the people who live in the location?  I don't think anyone here would argue that the hurricanes of last year did not permanently damage the lives and the economy of Puerto Rico.  This event is somewhat smaller in scale, but no less disruptive to the lives of the people who actually live in that neighborhood and no less "worthy" of being labelled as a symbol of ongoing Collapse.

Overall, collapse on the Industrial Civilizatioin level is about the collapse of the INFRASTRUCTURE that this society depends on.  Floods, Earthquakes and Tornadoes all do damage to that infrastructure, and really folks, just how many times can you repair it all?  There is a limit here.

On the Diner as I see it, we can chronicle all of them, the BIG ones and the not so big ones.  The death of this civilization will come from a thousand cuts more likely than one big ass Nuke fired off by the MIC or the NKs.

I have a friend, Sam, who was visiting his daughters who live close, but were managing to avoid direct impact. Ellicott City got whacked a couple of years ago, and had not yet quite finished reconstruction efforts.

One of the contributing problems, as I hear it, is that the area is criminally overdeveloped, and green space, which used to absorb a lot of water to mitigate the flooding in an admittedly disadvantageous space, is now developed, built up and paved over.
Former wetlands paved over and contributing to flooding. Wash, rinse, repeat.

This **** will end when greedhead developers can no longer get flood insurance. Not until.


Agreed. But until it does end, you will continue to be cursed with those who do not wish to accept the irrefutable truth that the CAUSE of all this crazy weather is the burning of fossil fuels.



Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
