And there's flooding on the other side of the globe, too
June 22, 2010
We've been dealing with serious flooding problems throughout the Upper Midwest over the last couple of weeks, and it turns out that we share this fate with people living in China -- though the Chinese are suffering on a much greater magnitude. Flooding in southern China has killed 132 people and displaced an estimated 800,000. To put that in perspective, the flooding has displaced more people than live in an entire Congressional district -- like Nebraska's 3rd Congressional District
, which includes virtually every Nebraskan living west of Lincoln. It can be pretty astonishing to consider the magnitude of the human impact of flooding like on that scale. It serves as a testament to the quality of America's engineers and its civil-works infrastructure that we can experience serious flooding without incurring a similar human cost.
