Effects of Flooding


Floods can be extremely dangerous which can have an effect on the economy, environment, and people.

Economic Effects

During floods, there can be dangerous effects on roads, bridges, farms, houses, and automobiles being destroyed. With the result of this, people become homeless allowing heavy costs on the people and government. This also takes years to re-build houses or buildings which is very expensive.

Environment Effects

The environment also suffers when there is a flood. Not only is it dangerous, but the chemicals and other substances end up in the water and contaminate the water bodies that the floods end up in.

People and animals

Many people and animals have died from floods also allowing many people to be injured and homeless. Animals have been killed by this also destroying their natural balance of their ecosystem. Flooding also brings a lot of diseases and infections including military fever, pneumonic plague, dermatopathia, and dysentery.

Economic, environment, and the people all have serious effects when it comes to floods. Floods can be very dangerous and expensive which is why we need to be careful when this happens. Unfortunately, there’s no way to prevent this when it’s happening so we need to stay as safe as possible as well as have a backup plan.
