Quoted @SteveBowenWx

Gov't: Preliminary economic damage cost in Zhengzhou listed at CNY65.5 billion (USD10.1 billion). Damage elsewhere in Henan will push losses even higher. #China Two separate USD10+ billion flood events (China & Europe) in a matter of days. Unbelievable.

Remarkable to see two $10 billion mega-disasters in the span of 1 week! The only other disaster reaching that threshold this year was the February cold wave in Texas, which cost $23 billion. What will hurricane season bring? https://t.co/3Chz57Hsk8

A great essay by climate scientist Jennifer Francis. https://t.co/mipojQIAKb

Quoted @MichaelEMann

“Wildfires, floods and extreme heat: It is time to heed warnings from climate scientists“ | My latest for @theHill: https://t.co/qaHncjSwTy

Great essay. “Dangerous climate change isn't two decades away - or even a decade away. It's here, for residents of Oregon, California, New York, Mumbai, central China, Siberia or any number of locations around the world that have been subject to searing heat, drenching floods…” https://t.co/stalMvbquO

Gaia's onslaught continued this week with an insanely extreme rainfall event in China. Next week could see yet another mega-rainstorm in China: slow-moving Typhoon In-fa is expected to drench Ningbo and Shanghai, with 20+" totals possible. https://t.co/JVljwFnkNG

It's really, really hot in a lot of places, so I took a closer look at how temperature records are formally vetted. Hundreds from the U.S. alone "would not survive a re-analysis,” @DrJeffMasters told me https://t.co/TWagrquXFR

An excellent article on weather records and the difficult process needed to overturn bogus ones. https://t.co/uMrfKMmhQ5

The 6" rainfall totals over just a few hours that led to ravaging floods in west Germany may not seem that extreme by U.S. standards, but they were enormous in a landscape accustomed to more gentle rains. @CC_Yale @DrJeffMasters https://t.co/fqV714dFr8

2nd day of dangerous heat at this year’s Hajj: On July 21, Mecca hit 37°C (98.6°F); web bulb temp (TW) was 26.6°C. This TW exceeds the U.S. NWS “Danger” threshold of 24.6°C (76.3°F). They also exceeded the “Danger” threshold on July 19. See my post: https://t.co/zC70zYHQdj

The AQI in Brainerd, MN is currently in the brown “Hazardous” range for PM2.5 pollution, due to wildfire smoke. Until 2021, the site had reached the red “Unhealthy” zone only once. Millions in the U.S. have air quality in the red “Unhealthy” zone today. https://t.co/2pcJfGt2de

Washington Post weather expert Jason Samenow: "Lined up like a parade, the heat domes are also part of a traffic jam of weather systems that instigated the flood disaster in Europe last week." Planetary waves! https://t.co/mWil4R5sfO

Zhengzhou, China, picked up an incredible 21.75 inches (552.5 mm) of rain over the 24-hour period ending 12z Tue.

That's ~87% of their average **annual** precipitation in 24 hours. 

It's also equal to their average 7-month total from April-October. 

No wonder the flash #flood. https://t.co/NwCHwjzTCn

2020 China floods killed 280, did $35 billion in damage. 2020 study, https://t.co/RH7Ay9ZB6k: each additional 0.5°C of global warming will increase China flood losses by $60 billion per year. Flood losses 1984-2018: $19 billion/year, 0.5% of GDP. 2006-2018: $25 billion/year. https://t.co/mCNnWgHIvB

Curious about the #climate change-#Tornado connection? Just think of the real estate meme on 3 most important issues: "location, location, location." @bhensonweather details it @CC_Yale https://t.co/EPrJzFrWhN
