The weather, currently.
Monday was the rainiest day in the past 90 years of recordkeeping in Dallas, Texas. A Texas-wide deluge continues this week.
Both Dallas and Austin broke their all-time records for maximum rainfall received in a 1hr time period, contributing to flash flooding happening across the state. Shoal Creek near Austin rose 16ft in a matter of minutes on Monday afternoon.
All this is happening while Texas remains in severe drought. These bust-to-boom scenarios are a textbook symptom of the climate emergency, where an acceleration of evaporation rates due to warmer temperatures simultaneously makes droughts and flooding more intense.
