Floods begin when soil and vegetation cannot absorb falling rain or melting snow, or when water runs off the land in such quantities that it cannot be carried in normal stream channels or retained in natural ponds and human-made reservoirs.
Floods happen by a sudden downpour of rain. The rain will come hard and fast and cause different areas to start flooding. Flooding is really dangerous.
