Usgs Predicts Mega-Flooding For California In Arkstorm Scenario

Recommended Posts

USGS predicts massive flooding for California in ARkStorm Scenario

Digital News Report – California could be faced with a super storm that could produce up to 10 feet of rain, and that is why scientists, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the California Emergency Management Agency (Cal EMA), and the United States Geological Survey met last week in Sacramento to discuss the possibility of massive flooding that could cause a potential of $300 billion in damages.

The ArkStorm Scenario was put together by the USGS. Data was assembled from prehistoric flood history in the state of California and then it was combined with today’s flood mapping and climate-change predictions. The ArkStorm is all hypothetical, but the USGS said that it could possibly happen. The ArkStorm predictions came together with the efforts of over 100 scientists and experts spending over two years to compile the report.

The USGS scientists that created ArkStorm scenario think that this mega-flooding event could happen every 100 to 200 years. They suggest that the damage potential is as serious as the large magnitude San Andreas earthquakes. They think that the mega-flooding could happen if two big storms come through one after the other creating this flooding event. They said that in January 1969 and in February 1986 storms produced enough rain that if combined could cause extreme flooding that is predicted in the ARkStorm.

If this major flooding event would occur the ARkStorm scenario suggests that one out of four home in California would succumb to some flood damage.

Sounds like a load of ****** to me.

Why is it s many people have nothing better to do than scaremonger? I mean, who really gives a damn about this kind of thing? If it was proven that this kind of event was actually going to happen at a specific time, what could be done about it?

Nothing basically.

in other news, the earth temperature could rise by 10degC in the next decades says the IPCC flawed guestimation, provided this that and other happen at the same time on the same day, one day. So far since the predictions were made the earth temperature has actually slowly been falling. The IPCC says that the prediction, otherwise know as GW, has not happened because this that and the other have failed to happen but it is only a matter of time before it all end in tears. To read the scenario, go to the IPCC website, read or watch the MSM or simply make your own prediction and read it to yourself.

{PRESS RELEASE 2:59PM, Sun Jan 23 2011} Durch predicts thousand foot wave to break on Rutland. In a press release, famed doom-monger, Durch, predicted that a thousand foot wave might break over the small ex-county UK region of Rutland, made famous by the Ruttles. Interviewed in his Rutland mountain eerie, Durch predicted that if a sufficiently high wave formed on any of the World's oceans, then by the time it reached Rutland it could still tower a thousand feet or more. "Of course, the original wave would have to be enormous depending on how far from Rutland it formed", he warned, adding "I think."

that's what I'm talking about, good man...

Phew! And there I was, thinking TPTB had run out of scare stories to distract me with. I was beginning to experience withdrawal symptoms.

My current favourite is the coming mini ice age. I can't tire of this one, yet.

they only think of the lawsuit...they'd better send in the army to be sure.

$300 billion in DAMAGES.

thatll be untold DAMAGE, covered by AIG, but the lawsuits....thats what scares them.

A wave higher than Nelson's Column and travelling faster than a jet aircraft will devastate the eastern seaboard of America and inundate much of southern Britain, say scientists who have analysed the effects of a future volcanic eruption in the Canary Islands.

There's that WILL word again.

If they both happen at once they won't know which way to turn.

Big flood, but not that big – are you sure about those figures?. I would imagine that major flood retention & routing structures have that as a routine design scenario.

Give me an event with a return period of about 1 in 1000 years, now that’ll float your boat and just about everything else.

NEWSFLASH: A massive storm would be massively damaging.

no way. get out of here.

you mean a hypothetical massive storm, would hypothetically cause massive amounts of damage? whod have thought it.

Wouldn't the US be b*ggered if the San Andreas fault goes off, the Arkstorm hits, that bit of cliff in Tenerife falls into the Atlantic and Yellowstone National Park falls into the centre of the Earth... all on the same Tuesday afternoon?
