Fifteen years later in 1927, Louisiana suffered the worst flood in US history. The 1927 flood led to mass migrations of black people from the south into northern cities.

On Good Friday, April 15, 1927, 15 inches of rain poured on New Orleans within 18 hours, causing water to rise four feet in parts of the city.

There have been many more floods in Louisiana, but I need to take the dogs for a walk and don’t have time to list them all. People who claim that Louisiana flooding has something to do with CO2, are complete morons.

    An excellent job on your part, Tony. Intuitively, you would think a place like Louisiana, prone to slow moving tropical systems and stalled out cold fronts, would receive huge floods from time to time.

    You have done a great job of documenting that fact, even going back 100 years or more, that Louisiana has a history of massive floods. These alarmists are a joke. They could put every restriction they want on energy use and Louisiana would still get frequent floods.

    Meanwhile, the unprecedented hurricane drought continues with no end in sight.
