    Smile "this" refers to previous statement

    sorry to say you all. however, can I use pronoun "this" to refer to previous statement? just as:

    There has been a flooding recently. This is because it has been raining for a week.

    thank first

    Re: "this" refers to previous statement

    Yes, but I would remove the indefinite article before flooding.
