6 inches of rain in 24 hours in central and southern England causes worst flooding in 60 years July 24, 2007: The Independent newspaper calls it 'A 21st century catastrophe.' Heavy rains between last Friday and Saturday caused an estimated billion in damage and left a third of a million people without drinking water, thousands more homeless and several towns isolated. The Guardian newspaper reveals the previous Labour government ignored two separate reports in 2004 and 2005, warning of inadequate drainage systems nationwide. The government has now ordered an independent review of the disaster and promised an additional 00 million to improve flood defences. The flooding coincides with a new study to be published in the science journal Nature that links human-induced climate change to rainfall patterns. The director of climate research at Environment Canada, Francis Zweirs, who co-authored the study, told the Globe and Mail, 'It's the first time we've detected in precipitation data a clear imprint of human influence on the climate system...Temperature changes we can cope with. But water changes are much more difficult...That will have economic impacts, and impacts on food production and could ultimately displace population.'
