How many thousands of ants do you think are in this floating ant raft? I mean, the size of it is just ridiculous and there’s more ants clumped up in balls on top of the raft too. Ants have been known to link their legs and mouths with each other to create these sort of ant rafts during flooding but this one is more…
Parts of America’s Deep South are in the middle of some out-of-control flooding, and the waters are continuing to rise.
At least 2,000 people were rescued from unprecedented rising flood waters in Baton Rouge on Saturday, and that was just the last reported count. There’s one rescue in particular you have to see though.
Over the past 48 hours, compelling evidence has emerged that a long-anticipated End Times is finally upon us. Let’s have a look.
Over the weekend, my social media feeds were draped in neon orange as the world exuberantly shared the first photos of Christo’s latest work, The Floating Piers, a 1.8-mile walkway across an Italian lake. It is easily the artist’s most ambitious piece from an engineering perspective—and one that actually adds value to…
As thousands were evacuated across multiple counties in Texas due to horrible flooding, one man and his family are living high and dry thanks to something he bought on the internet.
Last week’s flooding in France saw rivers reach their highest levels in 50 years, forcing the Louvre to move its art away from rising waters.

When you throw a GoPro on a fishing rod and toss it in the flooded Seine in Paris and then flip that footage upside down, you better be prepared for some interesting shots of the City of Light. Some of it is really cool, what you think is the real world gets all bendy and warped. Other parts can get a little bit dull,…
Over the last few days heavy flooding across France, Austria, and Germany has resulted in some scary photos, including surreal images of the Seine spilling over its banks in Paris. The river is getting a little too close for comfort for the Louvre, which is relocating some of its art.
Just last month, southeastern Texas saw some of the worst flooding in its history, described as “biblical” by many news outlets. Now, thanks to yet another spate of torrential rainfall, Texans are experiencing déjà vu all too soon.
Historic flooding—called “biblical” by almost every news organization—has paralyzed southeast Texas, evacuating neighborhoods, cancelling flights, and closing schools.

Florida, America’s lowest-lying state, faces dire predictions thanks to the accelerated melting of the world’s ice sheets. But a new study says this future is coming sooner and faster than previously predicted, prompting a major survey by the US Army Corps of Engineers to shore up the state’s most vulnerable regions.
El Niño is almost ready to give way for the rise of its cold counterpart, La Niña. But before it goes, it has one more tough weather hit to throw at the US: a bizarre combination of flooding and an ever-intensifying drought.
In 2012 Hoboken, New Jersey suffered the brunt of Superstorm Sandy when most of the city was flooded. Now a piece of infrastructure has been designed to prevent this from ever happening again, but some people who live there don’t want it built. Because they think it will look ugly.
We are slowly hurtling towards a dystopian future where cities raise themselves on hydraulic legs to begin the long hunt for resources. Only, in this case, replace cities with greenhouses, and the only resource being hunted here is dry land.
Unusually heavy rainfall and severe storms in parts of Missouri and Illinois late last month are now causing the Mississippi River to surge, threatening a number of communities with severe flooding.
We’ve seen plenty of dead malls reborn as unusual things, from high schools to greenhouses. The Taiwanese city of Tainan is one-upping them all by tearing down an aging mall to create a network of sandy, shady lagoons.
