image for Flash Floods Becoming Worldwide Epidemic

First a campground in Arkansas was inundated with rising flood waters killing an estimated 20 people this past weekend. Now, there are reports coming out of the Var region in southeastern France that the same type of flood has killed at least 19 people there.

While few others were affected by the flood in Arkansas, the flood in France has affected several towns and left thousands without power.

Doomsday predictions are popping up all over the internet declaring that this is not just mere coincidence but an omen of things to come. "Things like this normally happen in threes," said one. "But for this to have happened almost the same exact way, with campers dying, and within a week of each other is just too danged eerie."

The Good Sam RV Club, a camper's community organization, is calling this an epidemic and urging all campers to camp on high and dry land far away from any water source. "In fact, staying at most KOA campgrounds with their concrete slabs and treeless environments may just be the thing that saves you if you're going to camp out this summer," claims one Good Sam RV Club member. "Forget mother nature. She seems to be in a real nasty mood this camping season."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
