Rain Fall Amounts And Climate Change? What Is Happening?

On Sunday, 10 September, 2017 Hurricane Irma went through Saint Petersburg, Florida and there was 8.0 inches of rain in my rain gauge. On Friday, 29 September, 2017 a storm that was not a hurricane went through Saint Petersburg, Florida and there was 5.4 inches rain in my rain gauge. So a big hurricane only dropped 2.6 inches more than a non- hurricane rain storm. It appears to me that over the last 3 to 4 years, rain storms are dropping high amounts of rain more and more frequently.
Is this due to disruptive climate change resulting from atmospheric heating? I think so. This is one of the predicted effects of disruptive climate change. I see more and more soil erosion happening right in front of the studio from heavy rain fall. In the past, this did not happen nearly as often as it has in the last one to two years. I am going to have to do some mitigation work to stop the soil erosion. This is just one small step to prepare for what is coming. There will be a lot more to come.
This is so insignificant compared to what the people of Puerto Rico are having to deal with right now where there is very inadequate water, food, shelter, electricity, fuel, money, transportation and medical care! Remember the people of Florida and Texas, as well. People are dying! And this is only the beginning of the climate change era.
