FC: Floods By Alice White
1: What is a Flood? A flood is where a mass of water has covered or invaded a City, Country, or Continent. For example there is a flood in England because it has rained far too much! or There is a flood in America because the dam heavily overflowed. Then the water flowed into the cities.
2: Extreme Flood Disasters! | An extreme flood happened in Southern China causing a natural disaster. They experienced very heavy rainfall during the first four days of July 2009 and a really bad flood. It destroyed homes, crops and roads. Around 700 000 people were forced to evacuate their homes and 20 people were killed. Floods in Rongshui, cut off roads stranding 300 teenagers at High School, with limited food.
4: Flood Investigator Flood Water Control Center: They monitor how much water we have and are always on the look out for floods. Retarding Basins: Are design to keep downstream areas from flooding places. Housing Developments by the River: Are very beautiful but are worst struck at times of floods. The River: Is a beautiful place to be, but not when a flood is coming. When there is a bad storm, the rivers swells then overflows. Storm Water Drains: Are a big and important necessity in cities. When it rains, the water goes through the pipes and in sent back to the rivers and lakes where it belongs.
5: Industrial areas: Aren't as affected by rain, it just all goes back into storm water drains. But when it floods these areas are all affected causing financial loss. Parks: Can be affected by heavy rainfall and flooding from nearby rivers. This can damage or destroy vegetation, affect animals and their habitats, and erode the river bank, making it more vulnerable to flooding. Houses: Floods mostly wreck houses, destroying peoples homes and life possessions, sometimes taking irreplaceable treasures. Leaving people, homeless, in poverty and at risk of disease.
