According to the team at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, the amount of heavy downpours in much of the U.S. could increase five-fold by the end of the century. This would cause flash floods, mudslides and would ruin crops. The team said People need to start preparing for these disastrous storms now, since most areas aren't prepared to handle such dangerous weather. They cited climate change, saying as the average temperature increases, the air will get warmer and moister and more prone to these heavy storms. They ran a computer model for the study, inserting details about climate and weather from 2000 and 2013 and making adjustments for predictions about the rise of average temperatures.
