(Note: a short video clip can be seen at the site and it's worth checking out, although only some cities are listed.)

What The Earth Would Look Like If All The Ice Melted

We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century.
As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

Re: FLOODING (World) - Starwater & Biblcal Floods

Extinction Level Event – Biblical Floods – from Starwater
Many discussions of the imminent poleshift point to sloshing of oceans and other bodies of water as causing worldwide floods.  But new research in cosmic weather (space weather) throws a previously unknown but chilling player into a worst case scenario. A video by Suspicious 0bservers from July 7, 2014 set this information before the public. It continues to be the subject of extinction level event discussions.
- Earth’s weakening magnetosphere (due in part to moving magnetic poles and their shifting about creating more than 2 locations) allows Oxygen in the atmosphere to be pulled away.
- Hydrogen atoms from solar wind sweep up the free Oxygen forming hydrosols (OH) and  eventually water (HOH). 
- Cosmic rays also bring more Hydrogen, Oxygen and even water molecules from stars and space rocks, forming clouds in Earth’s atmosphere.
- Cooling and a weakened magnetosphere allow the starwater to fall to Earth in what can be biblical floods.

India and Myanmar monsoon rains leave dozens dead

1 August 2015
From the section Asia
At least 20 people have been killed in a landslide as monsoon rains continue to batter parts of South-East Asia.

The landslip in the eastern Indian state of Manipur buried a whole village, Indian media reported.

In neighbouring Myanmar, four western regions have been declared disaster zones after heavy floods left at least 27 people dead.

Incessant rain over several weeks has led to flooding and landslides in most of the country (also known as Burma).

Wind and rain from Cyclone Komen added to damage in recent days.

Elsewhere:
◾Floods in Vietnam left at least 17 people dead 
◾And in western Nepal, some 30 people were killed after torrential rain triggered landslides.

'Big disaster'

The landslide in Manipur state hit a remote village in Chandel district, bordering Myanmar, early on Saturday.

Rescue teams were not expected to get there until Sunday because of heavy rains and landslides, a local MP said.

Continuous rain in recent days has washed away bridges and roads and left thousands homeless, Indian NDTV reported.

In Myanmar, Mg Mg Khin, the director of disaster management with the national Red Cross, told the BBC the country was facing "a big disaster" and that there was a risk of more rain over the coming weeks.

The Red Cross was waiting for information on the extent of damage to refugee camps in Rakhine, he added.

Rakhine, along with Chin, Magwe and Sagaing, has been declared a disaster zone.

The UN said 140,000 people in Rakhine are living in camps near the region's capital, Sittwe. Most are Rohingya Muslims.

Thousands of people are sheltering in monasteries, but one report said people from the Rohingya Muslim minority were turned away from some shelters.

The Burma Times said security forces turned away Rohingya Muslims from abandoned schools and community centres in the western Rakhine state.

More than half a million acres of rice paddy fields have been flooded, the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation said.

On Saturday, the UN said it was to send emergency teams to assess the need for food, drinking water and shelter.

"This is much, much worse than normal," Toe Zaw Latt, the Myanmar bureau chief for the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) network, told the BBC from Yangon.

On Friday, Ko Myo Zaw Lin, a journalist with DVB, was filmed carrying out a live interview in flood waters up to his chest in the southern city of Bago

RE World flooding, I haven't been keeping up with posting the many events. Terrible flooding events lately.
Global Moderator Jimfarmer posted some flood events today (and frequently) in his Topic,

Called the “plug in [an] Antarctic bathtub,” the Totten Glacier holds back more ice than any other glacier in East Antarctica – which is far larger than the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The Totten Glacier outlet acts as a stopper for the Totten Glacier catchment, which is a “collection basin for ice and snow that flows through the glacier.” Thus, if this region collapses, sea levels could rise by more than 11 feet.

Reuters reported flooding of the Seine river in Paris due to four days of torrential rains. The officials at the Louvre were forced to move art works to a safer higher place. This flooding affected parts of Germany.
The flooding in Paris really impressed me. Wow.

82 die in Europe's worst floods for decades

By ANTHONY FRANCE, COLIN ADAMSON and HUMFREY HUNTER, Evening Standard

At least 58 died in the Black Sea area at the weekend, where thousands of Russian tourists were caught out by floodwaters that swept cars and tents out to sea.

Thousands of British tourists are being forced to cancel holidays amid the chaos. One of the worst-hit cities is Prague, where more than 50,000 people, including foreign visitors, were being evacuated today as the most devastating floods for more than a century threaten to engulf the Czech capital.

Soldiers and hundreds of volunteers worked into the early hours building sandbag barriers. But as torrential rain continued to fall overnight much of the city looked likely to be under water by this evening and a state of emergency was declared.

Parts of Mala Strana, the mediaeval area of the city centre, were almost certain to be flood-damaged as the deluge forced dams on the river Vltava to open their gates. Prague has not seen the river as high since 1890 with estimates putting the water flow at 20 times the average for the time of year.

In Croatia, according to the country's tourist board, 25,000 people - up to 8,000 of them British - have cancelled trips and those already on holiday have shortened their stay. Fearing for the future, Croatian tourism chiefs are now heading to the UK to get expert advice on how to offer the best holiday facilities when it rains.

Croat tourism expert Ruzica Mikacic said: "This has been terrible for our country's economy. We have had 8,000 British campers cancel and there are probably many more who decided not to come. Some actually made it here, did not like the weather and decided to head off back home or somewhere where it didn't matter that it was raining."

A Welsh women's under-21 hockey team was today stranded in hotel in Ceske Budejovice, two hours south of Prague, by a moat of water with the players unable to get to the airport to fly home. The 27 players and supporters are helping local residents fill sandbags to protect the hotel from the rising water after an international tournament was cancelled after just one game on Sunday.

In Austria, Salzburg has been declared a disaster zone and Vienna is under threat. The Danube has been closed to all shipping as the river has swollen to a near 100-year high. Three people have been killed in towns near Salzburg. In the city itself 1,000 buildings were partially or totally submerged, and the sightseeing-boat Amadeus sank. Emergencyservices in Upper Austria, where over three-quarters of the region is affected by flooding, said 8,000 workers and volunteers were ready to help evacuate residents.

Experts fear the Danube will rise by as much as 30 feet, threatening several villages. In Germany an eight-year-old girl was among four people who died because of the floods. Six districts in Bavaria and others in Saxony have been declared a state of emergency and the highway-between Munich and Salzburg through the Alps was closed. In Switzerland, torrential rains caused a series of small landslides.

Worldwide, a mudslide ploughed through a mountain village in China's Yunnan province, killing seven people. In the Philippines, at least 11 people died and more than 400 were evacuated as heavy rains and a waterspout triggered mudslides, damaged houses and washed out roads. At least 14 people have drowned in flash floods in Iran today. In Nepal, meanwhile, relief agencies say floods and landslides following torrential monsoon rains have killed at least 422 people, while scores more are missing and thousands have been left homeless.

For a change, much of southern England was bathed in warm sunshine today. For the next few days London and the South-East can expect sunshine and temperatures as high as 27C. "For once it looks like we are the lucky ones weatherwise," said a Met Office spokesman.

As Marshall has pointed out recently in his “Update 10” post, the “extreme earth weather events” world wide we have been seeing have taken a _massive_ uptick since the first of the year! :o

https://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/2016/07/09/3-dead-over-100-injured-after-typhoon-nepartak-clobbers-taiwan-streets-look-like-a-bomb-has-gone-off

3 Dead, over 100 injured after Typhoon Nepartak clobbers Taiwan streets – ‘look like a bomb has gone off’


July 2016 – TAIWAN — Typhoon Nepartak is now spinning in the Taiwan Strait, after leaving three people dead and more than 100 injured in Taiwan. The storm came ashore in southeastern Taiwan as the equivalent of a Category 4 just after 6:30 a.m. local time Friday morning, but has been downgraded several levels as it moves toward China. “As anticipated, Taiwan’s mountainous terrain weakened Nepartak considerably,” said weather.com senior meteorologist Jonathan Erdman. “However, regardless of its intensity, heavy rainfall will continue to be a concern in Taiwan and southeast China, likely triggering areas of flooding into the weekend.”

One of the deceased was a Taiwanese soldier who was found dead Friday morning after falling into the ocean off Dongyin Island in the Taiwan Strait Thursday, according to Taiwan’s Central Emergency Operation Center. The other fatality was a man that drowned off a beach in Hualien County Thursday. A 71-year-old woman died from severe wounds after being hit by a falling piece of furniture, Focus Taiwan reports. The massive storm came ashore about 10 miles south of Taitung City, packing winds around 150 mph, damaging structures and dumping torrential rainfall on parts of the island nation.

“The streets already look like a bomb has gone off, and this is just the start of it… crazy power,” professional stunt rider Dave McKenna, who is currently in Taiwan, said on his Instagram account as the storm rolled in. “I’ve been in some back home in Australia but nothing like this,” he said. Storm trackers rode out the western half of the typhoon as it arrived in Taiwan during the overnight hours and into Friday morning, and reported damage to buildings and numerous trees downed by the massive storm.

Flash floods in Indonesia kill 20; rescuers hunt for missing

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-indonesia-floods-idUSKCN11R0XC?il=0

ndonesian search and rescue teams worked on Wednesday to find victims of flash floods that killed 20 people and damaged hundreds of homes, authorities said.

The floods hit the Garut area, about 200 km (125 miles) southeast of the capital, Jakarta, on Tuesday after torrential rain.

"We've reported that we found 20 bodies and we've identified 15 of them," said Endah Trisnawati, a member of a police disaster victims identification unit.

It was not clear how many people were missing but some officials in the area said it could be up to 15. Some media reported 20 people were unaccounted for.

Flash floods and landslides are common in Indonesia, often caused by heavy rain at this time of year.

Saudi Arabia – 1 Dead, Hundreds Rescued After Floods in Asir Region

5 FEBRUARY, 2017 BY RICHARD DAVIES IN ASIA, NEWS  · 0 COMMENT
The Saudi Directorate of Civil Defense (SDCD) reports that 1 person has died and at least 10 were injured after severe flooding hit the country’s Asir region on Wednesday, 15 February 2017.

SDCD also says that searches are ongoing in Abha for several people that are believed to be missing in the floods.

The heavy rain began to fall on 14 February. The worst hit areas were around the southern cities of Abha and Khamis Mushayt. Flooding caused road closures and cars were left trapped, submerged in the streets. A tunnel in the city of Khamis Mushayt was completely flooded and left 4 people trapped in their vehicle. All four were rescued.

Emergency crews responded to a total of 914 calls for assistance. Many of the 280 rescued were in vehicles at the time.

Schools have been closed as a result of the severe weather.

3 Months of Rain in 24 Hours

SDCD says the heavy rain began to fall on Tuesday, 14 February and some vehicles, including a school bus, were trapped in fast flowing water.

According to WMO figures, Khamis Mushayt recorded 63 mm of rain in 24 hours to 15 February.

Abha recorded 90 mm during the same period, which is roughly the equivalent of the averages for January, February and March combined. During an average February the city would see around 21.5 mm and 45.5 mm in March, according to WMO
