Texas Braces for New Round of Floods as Tropical Storm Bill Sloshes Ashore

105 16.06.2015 Инфо

The weather is messing with Texas in extremely rare ways with a waterlogged Tropical Storm Bill making landfall on Tuesday morning between Houston and Corpus Christi. The storm threatens to bring another foot of rain to a state that saw its wettest month on record during May.
In fact, there is so much water in Texas' rivers, lakes and soils that T.S. Bill may not weaken significantly over land right away, as most tropical weather systems do. It may even draw enough energy from inland moisture and a tropical atmosphere in place over Texas and Oklahoma to intensify over land, an example of what scientists call the "brown ocean effect."
