Rising temperatures and human activity are increasing storm runoff and flash floods

Researchers have demonstrated for the first time that runoff extremes have been dramatically increasing in response to climate and human-induced changes. Their findings show a large increase in both precipitation and runoff extremes driven by both human activity and climate change. They also found that storm runoff has a stronger response than precipitation to human-induced changes (climate change, land-use land-cover changes, etc). https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/10/181022085820.htm
