My understanding was that some of the worst water

. I'm discounting the Roaring Forties and Furious Fifties as (apparently) no one with any sense goes in them for long...
I suspect that you are getting the journalistic effect that one news story makes editors and reporters sensitive to similar news stories and as such they get reported as a series of events
. This gives the effect of a cluster of bad news.
