True enough.  Tropical Storm Agnes was not what you'd call an impressive
storm system.  But when she parked herself over the Susquehanna river basin
and poured down rain for a solid week, she caused broken levees and whole
valleys to flood.  At the time (1972) Agnes was the worst storm in terms of
property damage in US history.   I haven't lived in a flood plain since.
