      About 4.5 feet of rain fell over those years on average, about a foot more than the average annual rainfall over the past century, and the scientists attributed the increase to climate change
      Your NOAA link doesn't provide plots, so I don't know where you got your information.

      The past 5 years were far above the trend and the wettest since records began. This is consistent with the figures cited in the Globe article.

      Erosion and dispersal of sediments are caused by actual rainfall, not trends, and it's been very high for several years.
