Extreme rainfall was far more likely to appear in the computer simulations of our current climate than in a world without global warming, so they're fairly confident in saying that the flooding was linked to global warming. The excessive rainfall is pretty simple to explain.

"It's largely driven by the fact that the air is just warmer, and therefore holding more water," [researcher Myles] Allen says.
