America is sinking underwater

Your daily dose of natural disasters and amazing phenomena for August 24, 2021...

Hi everybody, I hope you had a great weekend! Here some news:

Mexico, NC, Tennessee and the US Northeast under water

  • For the first time in 30 years, a hurricane has made landfall in New England. Tropical Storm Henri brought storm winds and heavy rain to Rhode Island Saturday.

    Henri brought a record for rain in one hour in New York City and dumped heavy rain into central New Jersey, leaving more than 120,000 homes without power on Sunday afternoon.

    Rhode Island, New York, and Connecticut have all declared states of emergency, but experts say the storm is weakening as it moves inland across New England.

    As a result of all of the rain, flooding is predicted in Long Island, eastern New York, northeastern Pennsylvania, and parts of New England. President Biden said FEMA is prepared to begin emergency assistance.
