    This is where the brainwashed youngster of today are at a major disadvantage, they haven’t experienced any of the weather that is so called unprecedented. I remember the big flood of 1953 and my wife was one of those evacuated from their flooded property by the Army.
    Of course there was less drama to the news stories in those days and communication was also worse so we didn’t hear of everything going on in the world, but we new enough.
    If only they taught Modern History people might, just might, be less gullible.

    I was there for Carol, Edna and Hazel. 3 major hurricanes hitting the populated eastern seaboard. Far more intense storms than Irene or Sandy. Then Connie and Diane in 1955. We were starting to think hurricanes were a normal annual event.

    I was born in 1954, and I don’t remember any of this.
    But seriously, as ACOsborn says, the sheer volume and panic level in the modern news industry have certainly fanned the flames. I think we know too much, and yet not enough.

    Major floods in North Coast of NSW in 1954. Still the biggest floods for some areas.
