00:16 Oh, my!
00:17 This is a flood.
00:19 Help! Help!
00:22 But first, you need to learn about floods.
00:26 Zoom in!
00:28 Many of you might think that floods are just overflowing of water!
00:33 Well, it is much more than that.
00:39 An event when a dry piece of land suddenly gets submerged in water,..
00:44 ..is usually known as floods!
00:47 Oh, don’t take it lightly.
00:49 A flood comes in all depths,…
00:52 sometimes it is so high that you don’t even have a place to go.
00:58 The power of floods is sometimes very dangerous,
01:02 it can knock your car off and sweep you off your feet too!
01:08 Causes of floods are:
01:10 Heavy rains.
01:11 River overflow.
01:14 Or hurricanes.
01:16 Ice or snow melts.
01:18 Breaking of dams etc.
01:27 So, a flood can be divided majorly into 3 categories.
01:33 Slow on-set floods.
01:36 this kind of flood usually happens when water bodies over flood their banks.
01:42 As the name suggests, this one develops slowly.
01:46 Which can last for days or even weeks.
01:51 Rapid on-set floods.
01:53 This kind of flood lasts for a day or two.
01:57 Even though it is destructive, it still takes a little time to develop…
02:02 ..and thus giving people a chance to escape!
02:07 Now comes the most dangerous of them all.
02:10 Flash floods!
02:12 This kind occurs within a very short time,…
02:16 ..that is, 2-6 hours, and sometimes within minutes.
02:21 This doesn’t give any time to prepare, no warnings, no words of caution!
02:27 Just destruction!
02:30 But hey! Don’t lose heart!
02:33 We can do our bits to prevent floods.
02:36 Yes, that’s right!
02:38 Planting more trees help preventing floods.
02:43 The roots of plants and trees dig deep into the soil and create spaces between soil particles,..
02:50 ..which helps in seeping and holding on to floodwater.
02:55 TRIVIA TIME!
02:58 Floods can even occur in deserts!
03:01 In Ancient Egypt, people relied on the Nile River floods because they created enriched soil for farmers.
03:10 So, what are the three types of floods?
03:14 Well, you keep thinking and post your answers in the comments section below.
