A flood is a overflow of water that submerges land. A flood is usually a result of heavy rainfall, dam failure or rapid snow melt. Floods can kill people, but they are typically temporary and only a small area is affected. If a flood ever happens, there is little to do but flee for high ground. Mainly, there are three types of flooding, Riverine, Flash and ice jam.
