Walls of Water 10ft High in a Month-Long Mega Hurricane: California Told to Prepare for Biblical 'ARkStorm' Sun, 16 Jan 2011 22:15 CST
Walls of water 10ft high, rain falling in feet instead of inches, and nine million people's homes flooded during a hurricane-like megastorm that could last more than month.
The U.S. Geological Survey has now begun planning for the return of the ARkStorm, so named after the boat Noah used to escape the flood in the Bible. The capped-up 'A' and 'R' stand for 'atmospheric river'.
Roots of deadly 2010 India flood identified; Findings could improve warnings

Rasmussen and Robert Houze, a UW professor in atmospheric sciences, studied satellite images and what's called re-analysis data to piece together what happened to create such a torrential downpour. Their conclusions – including that the flash flood was set off by a string of unusual weather events not unlike those that caused devastating flash floods in Colorado and South Dakota in the 1970s – appear in the Nov. 14 Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
For the majority of the United States, the weather has been relatively tranquil. But the U.S. west coast weather has been stormy, as a series of disturbances continues to sweep across portions of California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, and Idaho.
Rainfall totals have been impressive, with some areas receiving over five inches of rain within the past three or four days. The “atmospheric river” www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/atmrivers/ as some meteorologists have termed this event, continues to flow into these regions this weekend to produce even more problems. While high pressure/ridging dominates a large majority of the United States, a flow of storms thanks to a powerful jet stream continues to bring series of disturbances across the west coast.
Check out some of these impressive rainfall totals (in inches) across the region that occurred from Tuesday, November 27, 2012 through Friday, November 30, 2012 as of 4:00 AM PST
The stormy weather across the Pacific Northwest is occurring thanks to an “atmospheric river” that is set up across the region. The term “atmospheric river” is defined as narrow regions in the atmosphere that are responsible for most of the horizontal transport of water vapor outside of the tropics. These rivers contain the largest amounts of water vapor, the strongest winds, and stall over watersheds vulnerable to flooding which ultimately can create extreme rainfall and floods. This “river” continues to flow into the west coast and it continues to bring a series of strong storm systems that produce heavy rains, accumulating snows, and strong winds.

The growing threat of surface water flooding in urban areas, Dec 2013 Commonly, flooding occurs when water levels rise and rivers burst their banks – also known as fluvial flooding – or when high tides and stormy weather cause coastal flooding. But less well known are the risks associated with pluvial events, which are caused by intense periods of rainfall. insider.zurich.co.uk/market-expertise/growing-threat-surface-water-flooding-urban-areas/
“This problem is also exacerbated by less green spaces,” said Paul. “Urban development, concreting over driveways and the deregulation of planning for many home extensions means that water has nowhere to go. For instance, Thames Water has said that impermeable surfaces in London have doubled in the last five years.
Córdoba: Recovery Effort Underway After Deadly Floods by Indy Staff, 18 February 2015
More than 300mm of rain – the equivalent of around 30% of the annual average – fell within 12 hours on Sunday. The storm caused flash floods in several areas of the province, leading to fatalities and widespread damage to infrastructure. This included an aqueduct, leaving municipalities in the mountainous Sierras Chicas area in the northwest of the province without running water.
Provincial Governor José Manuel de la Sota described the rain on Sunday as a “tsunami that fell from the sky”.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott declared a state of emergency in nine counties after widespread, deadly flooding hit the nation's fourth-largest city Monday morning. Rainfall came down at rates as high as four inches an hour, flooding waterways at rapid rates and leaving residents trapped in their own homes and vehicles. weather.com/news/news/houston-texas-deadly-severe-flooding
