Technological and scientific development lead to urbanization on flood
plain, many industries were also concentrated on flood plain in order to
achieve the economic benefits of close proximity of river. These newly
constructed structures act as a barrier to river water and as a result of that
flood stages are increases rapidly and resulting damage is also increases.
The probability of flooding is expected to increase in future due to the
increase in encroachment of structural features on flood plain and increase
in amount of rainfall. So, it necessitates to do some research on floods for
better understanding of effective measures for preventing and managing
floods. The present study attempts to assess the flood effect on
agricultural land, houses, household property, human beings, animals,
transportation, basic services (like telephone, mobile phones, electricity,
etc.), normal commercial tides and public utilities. It also intends to plan for
controlling the floods and to minimize the flood affect in area. So, this
study is very helpful to know about flood basics, severity of their impact
and also help to comprehend that how to handle these flood situations in
effective way.
