When it rains…

3 April 2013

191 mm in two hours?  That’s 7.5 inches of rain for the metrically challenged, and that is a lot of rain.   And more of that severe weather some in the U.S. pretend isn’t happening.

La Plata, Argentina (with a population of about a half-million) is experiencing what local officials are calling “an unprecedented catastrophe” with at least 40 dead and 2200 homeless according to early reports.
