Nonsense, the heavy rain in Germany is unsual and caught everybody off guard. There are areas in highland Germany which get flooded too. More or less shoe how severe is it. I guess you can't differential what is extreme and normal.Yes you can predict the volume of rain with reasonable accuracy - accurate enough to evacuate and move people to high ground. In Germany, people died because they ignored flood alerts and evacuation orders. I can't understand why anyone would go underground when torrential rain is expected. Underground is the worst place to be. My question is why was the underground/ subway even operational and why would anyone choose to be underground during floods.
It was Monday morning, and this government agency’s supercomputer, a machine the size of a hockey rink, had just generated a model forecast predicting with over 90% certainty and a precision down to 2 square kilometers that a string of West German communities would likely be befallen by severe flooding by late Wednesday.
Several warnings were issued days before last week’s deadly floods in Germany. However, overreliance on digital tools, reluctance to order evacuations and incredulity about the imminence of such a disaster were among factors that stood in the way of a pre-emptive response in some places.www.wsj.com
Just like 2011 Japan tsuanmi when some Japanese evacuate to 5th high building which they thought was safe. End up they still got washed away.
The rain in Henan is too fast and too furious which gives no time for warning and stop subway. There is nothing to blame on anybody. If u want to blame, blame heaven or God.
