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 occur when there is a sudden downpour of rain. This can cause flooding as well as mudslides depending on where you live. Flood are dangerous.
