Transcript of Floods Project

Flood Project What is a flood? Where do floods happen? Why do floods happen? When do floods occur? Heavy rainfall Heavy rainfall is one of the causes of flooding. This way of flooding occurs more often than others. Some floods that are caused by heaviy rainfall happen during the monsoon season. Floods can also happen when a dam bursts due to heavy rain. The river/lake that is dammed gets too full and the dam bursts. This can cause floods, that could be fast and dangerous. El Niño is a phenonenon that makes Pacific winds blow east to west. The winds blow warm from South America towards Indonesia and Australia occuring in rainy, tropical climates in these regions that can cause floods, were the west coast of South America remains cool. El Niño events occur every 4 to 5 years and result in a dramatic reduction in the strength in winds.

La Niña is a similar phenomenon where winds blow more stronger that usual, bringing rainfall in the West Pacific and similar drought conditions in the coast of South America.

The causation of these events of these events are not fully understood but there is evidence that these events are happening more regularly. Continuous rain They happen in a city that is
lower or slanted. They can also
happen where there is a lot of
rainfall. In some places where
there is a river, lake, or ocean,
it is likely to flood. A water body like a river,lake or sea can fill with water from heavy rains and overflow onto dry land flooding it. It happens when there is continuous rain during rainy seasons in certain places in the tropics or near the equator. (in other countries when snow is melting) Why did this flood happen? Where did this flood happen? Were there any
consequences? What caused that the water break the dam? Did it cause a flash flood? E

g During 2012, Singapore experienced some flash
flooding due to heavy downpour in Serangoon,
Bukit Timah, Toa Payoh and Orchard Road.
It was only small, and it drained quickly and so it didn't severely affect the roads. Unfortunately a
car went out of control, collided with another car
and then crashed into a canal, strong currents carried the car down the canal for over 50m! Rescuers battle Australian floods buildings houses people bushiness centers hospitals schools nuclear power plants apartments R

CLIMATE CHANGE AND GLOBAL WARMING Flooding in south and east Asia, linked to global warming will result in contamination of drinking water sources and increased incidence of water borne diseases such as the cholera . Flaviota la gabiota es idiota FLAVIOTA LA GAVIOTA ES IDIOTA Food and water to people who are homeless Shelter Medical attention Clothing to keep warm Blankets Caring environment (safe) Talk with people in same/similar situations Register that you are safe and alive so that the country/government know.

houses on stilts and houses where you just
need to move your furniture upstairs in a flood.
In Bangladesh a man made a solar powered
floating school on two boats for children who
couldn't go to school because of the floods.
Each boat has two computers powered by the
solar panels on the roof, math and writing posters
and stationary for the children and teacher. People don't get disease Homeless people don't have to live on the streets Sea level Rising coast flooded people drown diseases spread no hospitals Floods will become more common because the ice sheets of Antarctica starts to melt, animals and their habitat disappear because it melts their habitat gets destroyed of the co2 . less population no tourists no money for food people die Comfortable You could feel more comfortable because you know that other people are in a similar situation adaption adaption ingenuity ingenuity when the people are missing the government
some times send out search parties to try
finding the missing people no transportation no help no food or water no education
for children no good job in the future The emergency relief centers
provide shelter for the people
who have lost their homes revives
learning no builders to
repair the buildings people are homeless protects against floods Sea level rising more Sea level rising is caused by global warming.
Small islands will be underwater if global warming
continues. As water warms up, it expands, so sea
levels rising plus warmer oceans will increase the volume of
seawater. Hey mar shins i'm an earthling Crops rot and cause food shortage Floods cause famine Floods cause disease Floods cause water shortage Floods kill animals and plants UNICEF helps a lot people needed of food No electricity cannot cook food Sea level in the future
if global warming continues Hurricanes PANDA CHEESE Hurricanes cause flooding because they bring heavy rains. Hurricane Sandy brought flooding to the US when it hit in October 2012.
