      There are similar issues now with all the major rivers and human
      activity.

      I have posted before about CALFED, which is the management of the
      Sacramento meant to protect ducks and fish in the delta which by
      accident protected the microbial biosphere off shore--and hence
      drought behaviors to the region. So it's north and south that have
      been hit with the big droughts since CALFED, and in the Klamath the
      Salmon are going extinct and in So Cal they had a period two years
      ago with 4 inches of rain over like 15 months.

      Of course Katrina can be traced to drought and where Ophelia is
      moving--same deal. That's because salty waters have more conductivity
      about them. There are long term hydrate fields modulating this but
      rather than continue explaining the biological and electrical
      features just look at the drought monitor with your own eyes and see
      how it matches up with Katrina and Ophelia. Keep in mind there was a
      red tide in the NE GOM with Katrina and a red tide along the east
      coast w/ Ophelia:
