(WASHINGTON, D.C.) -- Here's the lead-in graph to a story published by Mother Jones:

" Three weeks ago, President Donald Trump signed an executive order that reversed an Obama-era requirement that future construction in areas likely to flood need to be built at a higher elevation.

But after the devastation Hurricane Harvey caused in Houston and with Hurricane Irma barreling toward Florida, the White House is now trying to walk back Trump’s order. "

It was common sense back in 2015 when the Obama White House updated flood-risk standards for the first time since the 1970s. Pure common sense.

The update incorporated for the first time climate models and sea-level rise into calibrations for building elevations. The new standard meant that any federally funded building in flood plains must be built at higher elevations, especially for critical infrastructure like hospitals and fire stations.

On August 15, Trump erased those standards "with one line buried in a broader infrastructure order," says the MJ story.

But with the recent spate of natural disasters the Trump White House has serious egg on its face and is now trying to distance itself from that developer-friendly Trump order.
