What is the difference between a flash flood and a regular flood?



  1. 0 Votes

    A flash flood is distinguished by the rapidness with which the flood occurs. A flash flood can take place within six hours of a major rainfall event. As such, there is little warning when a flash flood occurs. The innocuous nature of a flash flood may lead to more casualties as people underestimate the force a flash flood wields.

    Flash flood is generally very sudden with little or no warning like when a tsunami washes ashore, dam bursts, or strong and heavy rainfall cannot be handled by a city’s sewage drains and they system overflows.  

    A real flood is the effect of prolonged rainfall or melting snow etc. It generally takes some days or weeks to complete its course.
