Now that clouds are gone, satellite can show what is happening in #emiliaRomagna

You can clearly see 4 of the most important rivers in Romagna discharging in the sea the debris they’ve collected during the
#floods

They all flooded the most important cities in Romagna (noted in the pic), plus many towns and nearby areas

Reno didn’t overflow or break its banks, however many minor rivers, canals and streams flow into it, and many of them flooded many places, like Imola, and even broke down bridges and banks, whose material are now muddying the Adriatic sea water

NASA Worldview

"New York City is sinking in part due to the extraordinary weight of its vertiginous buildings, worsening the flooding threat posed to the metropolis from the rising seas, new research has found.

The Big Apple may be the city that never sleeps but it is a city that certainly sinks, subsiding by approximately 1-2mm each year on average, with some areas of New York City plunging at double this rate, according to researchers." #NewYork #NY #subsidence #RisingSeas #ClimateChange #floods #BigApple #cities #science

With abrupt climate change, there is abrupt change to the surface of the planet everywhere.
For the planet, “abrupt” is usually measured closer to millennia or centuries than to decades or years.
Measuring the moment is a human phenomenon.

Italy's deadly floods just latest example of climate change's all-or-nothing weather extremes

As evacuations continued following severe flooding in Italy’s northern Emilia-Romagna region, the death toll has risen to 13, with several people still reported missing.

Some 20,000 people have been left homeless in the area, with 41 towns and villages destroyed by water after six months’ of rainfall fell in less than 48 hours.

Officials say it has caused billions of euros' worth of damage.

Hi everyone, just some local 🇮🇹 updates bc Fediverse is an international social network after all
No good
#news by the way.

#Floods are devastating the #EmiliaRomagna region in #Italy right now.
After 2 years of extreme drought, this May we had not a single week without rain. In particular, rain is falling continuously for about 2 o 3 days now (almost 200mm of rain in 48 hours).

The result is 14 overflown rivers
6 people died
thousands of evacuees
shitload of euros of damage

The
#Reno river, the main one of the region, didn't overflow yet but water level is dangerously high.
Of course my house is
right next its banks but luckily they have been recently raised so maybe hopefully we'll be ok.

This situation resembles a lot the 2021 floods in Western Europe.
So I guess this shit is just routine by now. At lest I hope this events can raise attention about environment management, since this stuff happens at various degrees of seriousness yearly but still water basins management is just
LOL

Disaster alert accounts are preparing for a world after Twitter: be it #wildfires, #floods, #tornadoes, #earthquakes, #tsunami or some other #disaster, new API restrictions on automatic updates - and the characteristic Musk-era chaos over what the rules are and when they are applied - means you can no longer rely on Twitter for timely and reliable information.

#Pakistan is literally under water…
2022 #floods ended up affecting 6.3% of all the land in the 5th most populous country on earth.

When you take the country's terrain and concentration of cropland into account, the impact is even more striking.

Close to half of all summer harvest in the Sindh region were wiped out, with some effect carrying over to the Winter harvest.

2021 was comparatively mild, but 2020 already saw major floods. The trend is not good.

I went for a walk on Saturday. Our local river was about twice its usual width, and the stony beach by the ancient ford had completely disappeared. The trees were knee-deep in the flood.
It's fair to say we've had a good deal of rain lately, but never mind - we're promised ice and frost tomorrow.
