U.S. hurricane records that only go back to 1851 of course, and the accuracy of data going back to that year is suspect. However, storm anaylsis goes back to 1800, where there was a spike in storm activity!

But next month, those barges packing such necessities as coal, farm products and petroleum could instead be parked along the river's banks. The stubborn drought that has gripped the Midwest for much of the year has left the Mighty Mississippi critically low – and it will get even lower if the Army Corps of Engineers presses ahead with plans to reduce the flow from a Missouri River dam.

If you look at the quoted portion, you see that the buoy that recorded the wave has been in place since 2008. Irene (2011) was the previous record holder.
Seems that "shattered record" is a tad disingenuous, since data goes all the way back to four years ago.

U.S. Ranchers Struggle to Adapt to Climate Change: Scientific American

when ranchers call it "climate change", ya better listen -----

Quote:
The drought has killed off much of the natural forage on grazing pastures as well as the alfalfa that Currier and other ranchers typically grow, forcing them to dig into savings to buy hay, straw, soybean supplements and other alternative feeds. Supply shortages have sent corn and soybean prices to record heights.
