Climate summit considers ‘the new norm’

The Meramec River flooded Fenton and Valley Park in December, 2015. “These are no longer 500-year floods. These are the new norm,” said Jack Fishman, who is organizing the St. Louis Climate Summit at St. Louis University.

St. Louis had two 500-year floods — December of 2015 and April of 2017 — within 16 months. "These are no longer 500-year floods. These are the new norm," said Jack Fishman, the organizer of the St. Louis Climate Summit at St. Louis University later this month.
