Which country has the most floods?

Answer

The low-lying nation of Bangladesh has the most frequent flooding, followed closely by China, India, Nepal and Bhutan. Bangladesh lies in the southern coastal regions of Southeast Asia; most of its land surfaces are at or below sea level, which makes it a prime spot for flooding from monsoons, cyclones and melting Himalayan glaciers.

Bangladesh has over 230 rivers, which are fed by springs and melting glacial waters. The land surrounding the riverbanks in many locations is prone to soil erosion and saltwater intrusion, which makes water retention problematic. Bangladesh also has a warm, humid climate, which creates frequent rainfall and torrential downpours.
