Its not my personal opinion but I can see why you would think that the way I phrased it, so that's on me, my mistake.

The Europe flooding is also part of a natural disaster.

And the Chinese situation we have now is also a natural disaster.

My point is that these natural phenomena are increasingly becoming more common due to climate change. New infrastructure, buildings, emergency plans etc, should be updated to reflect that increased activity

100-year events are now becoming 10-to-20 year events
I think we should all recognize that these unpreventable natural disasters are a omen to a looming climate crisis in the near future instead of using them as a way to bash ether China or Germany's government. There is no way China or Germany's sewer system can handle such torrential rains so such damage is basically unavoidable. It isn't like China or Germany's government hasn't come up with a decent sewer system already. Those who use natural disasters to bash any country's government (especially using any natural disaster that is in such magnitude that great damage is 100% unavoidable) are basically like those FLG type of people here in Taiwan who are saying that the great floods in China are "inevitable proof of God's divine punishment on China and the CCP" and can't wait for the collapse of the Three Gorges Dam so modern China can be forever destroyed.

And here I thought and always been told that religious people, especially Christians are so pious and humane of them all. I wasn't aware that these same wonderful people would wish cataclysmic and genocidal death upon another country all because it doesn't like it's mother country's system form of governance. What a sad and pathetic type of people.

The flood in Zhengzhou is said to be on the magnitude of once in a thousand year. I don't know the factual basis to make such a claim, but it at least gives you a sense of the severity of the flood. I suppose it's probably just a case of too much water in too short a time that was beyond anyone's experience or expectation.

From what I heard the amount of rain in just 3 days was equal to the annual rain the area had in the previous year

China Aims to Close Gender Gap in Science and Technology Sector
By Zhang Wanqing and Winifred Wang
Jul 21, 2021

"The new policy encompasses more than a dozen measures that would allow more women to join the rapidly expanding sector. The measures include increasing the number of female members in networking associations, non-discriminatory hiring practices, as well as extending research deadlines and putting aside subsidies for breastfeeding mothers returning to work after childbearing."

From the article:

Zhengzhou on Tuesday experienced the highest daily rainfall of 457 millimeters since authorities began tabulating such data, Xinhua reported, citing the provincial meteorological bureau. The city also experienced a record hourly rainfall of just over 200 millimeters right before rush hour between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.

The average annual precipitation in Zhengzhou is 640 millimeters, only slightly more than the total precipitation seen in the city over the past three days.
