    Now St Louis is being destroyed by Black Lives Matter, and their leftist agitators.

  3. We had a tornado zip through downtown Austin in the 1920s, mebbe 1923? But there was one in the sixties in Dallas, mebbe 1965? that really got their attention. I used to shrug it off to the Wicked Witch of the West, but the Established Scientific Consensus has shown me that the desperate shortage of coercion and looting now plaguing These States must surely have been the ex-post-facto cause. I once was lost, but now I’m found… was blind, but now, I seee!

    St. Louis was hit by an even worse tornado in 1896 that killed 255 (including E. St. Louis, IL). In 1959, St. Louis was hit again with 21 fatalities.

    For a major city, St. Louis has by far the worst tornado history in terms of fatalities, even worse than Oklahoma City.

    If the 1925 tornado hit St. Louis head on, it would be hard to imagine how many fatalities there would have been, probably well in the thousands.

    Hi Tony,

    The EPA has some new charts one their webpage.

    Figure 1. Drought clearly shows that the 19030’s were the worst decade and that it has been getting progressively wetter since 2000.

    Researchers study old flood records to help predict when Brisbane’s next big wet will be

    The project — The Big Flood: Will It Happen Again? — looked at palaeological flood records to find possible links between past and future flooding.

    “The record itself goes back many thousands of years and we’ve published the record for the last 2,000 years, and that record shows that seven floods like 2011 happened in the Valley over that time period.”

    “We discovered major floods occurred on the Lockyer Creek in 500AD, 1300 and in the 1700s — well before historical and gauging station information was available — and in the 1890s and 1970s.
