3 million people affected.....horrible. This is happening so much now that it isn't any longer a once in a lifetime event. Climate disruption has become the norm so it is lost in, one more natural disaster event.

I could ask all the people in this apartment complex if anyone heard of the floods in Miami a couple weeks ago and I would be hard pressed to find one that would know of it I suspect. Our GOP Tea Bag Gov. has forbidden any State worker to say the words sea level rise and our Corporate media goes along with it. So unless you lived there or nearby it wasn't spoken about and I live in the same State. Social media is where I found out about it, a homemade video.

Isn't just homes we worry about, the craps become ruined for 3 million people as well as their water to drink is contaminated.
