14 killed by raging rivers across America's West due to record snowmelt

Massive waterfalls in Yosemite National Park and rivers raging in mountains throughout the western United States are thundering with greater force than they have for years - and proving deadly as warm weather melts the deepest mountain snowpack in recent memory.

Record snowfall on towering Western peaks this winter virtually eliminated California's five-year drought and it is now melting rapidly.

But it has contributed to at least 14 river deaths and prompted officials to close sections of rivers popular with swimmers, rafters and fishing enthusiasts.


As you can see from the highlighted text above. The drought is over. But you've only gone from one extreme to another. I ask myself how much more this kind of thing will happen. While I do NOT believe in the global warming bullshit. There are signs that weather is becoming extreme in some ways.
