A literal flood of information

This blog usually discusses a metaphorical flood of information.

Here's a literal one.

In March 2009 a helicopter carrying workers to an offshore oil rig crashed off Newfoundland. Robert Decker was seriously injured but survived. Seventeen others died.

Now Decker describes the crash to a public inquiry.

Can you imagine dealing with the flood of information created by a helicopter crash in the frigid North Atlantic Ocean?

I can't.
