60 ft of water not severe.

On the 28th of February 1894, West Australia had one of the great floods, with places 60 feet under water.

60 ft flood

Apparently having 20,000 sheep swept away and 60 feet deep water is not severe, because C02 at the time was only 270 ppm.

The BOM have reminded us only this morning that ENSO never produced severe weather previously, and if it did it’s not as bad as the present.
