    Saw it in the news that North and South Caroline were hit hard by flooding. The worst flooding in a thousand years!

    Strange. As CNN mentioned Joaquin a few times, like: "While Hurricane Joaquin is predicted to miss the U.S., water connected to the storm is feeding torrential rain on the East Coast." Maybe it's a combination of several factors.

    The flooding is devastating to so many! My heart goes out to all the people and animals affected by this flooding.

    I saw that. It's bad enough people have to endure this type of thing, but the TV sensationalism is ridiculous. Really? The worst in a thousand years?? I'd like to know who was keeping weather records in 1015.

    Maybe they "misspoke".

    Seven years ago, Texas had the worst flooding of the century. And just this May, it was the wettest month in Texas since they keep weather records.

    Across the pond, France had a bad flooding and many people died.

    It seems the weather is getting extreme across the world.

    OK, this makes somehow sense.

    Excerpt:

    A "1-in-1,000 year event" means that there's a 1 in 1,000 (or 0.1% chance) of it happening in any given year in a given location, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said.
