The inclusion of the recognizable object (car) and familiar-looking areas will help viewers connect with the impacts of flooding. If the situation depicted is a 'local' scene than it is even more effective. Extreme weather events are projected to increase with a changing climate.
WHAT IT SHOWS: On Thursday, 19th November, 2009 over 31cm of rain fell in 24 hours on the Cumbrian mountains. The single largest rainfall total in the British Isles since records began. It caused unprecedented flooding, with Cockermouth being particularly badly hit after both the Cocker and Derwent burst their banks. The main street was 5 feet underwater and millions worth of damage was caused. This shot shows a flooded car in Ambleside, UK.
