The power of water

A flood is one of the most powerful forces on the planet able to sweep away people buildings and vehicles.

Floods can accompany hurricains, but most frequently they are caused by rivers whose level rise due to long periods of rain. In the spring, floods from rapidly melting snow from the mountains  are common.When the water rises  high enough to over flow it leaves people to swim around to safety.


  • Flood waters can even eat their way through slabs of paved road.
  • beware of flash floods.... A flash flood could happen in a split second sending muddy waters down canyons or dry steam beds.
