Are floods becoming more common?

    Yes it is because of deforestation. As more and more trees are cut down it is reducing the natural banks that are more equipped to handle high flood waters. The trees roots help keep the soil compacted and solid.  As the banks erode, the rivers can flood more easily and can do significant damage to the surrounding areas.
