Worse Flooding in Europe

Due to rising waters, floods that used to occur once a century will likely occur once a year or more.  That's about 100 times worse than it used to be on the basis of frequency.  While severity is important too, frequency is a big determiner in people's ability to recover from setbacks.  If they haven't recovered before the next one hits, they take more damage, which tends to be unsustainable.
