Summary
Describes the causes and effects of floods throughout the world, how relief agencies help, and what can be done to predict and prevent future floods. Although disasters-both natural and man-made-are frequently in the news, it is sometimes difficult to understand how people and communities manage when disaster strikes. How do food and medical supplies get through when roads and railways are destroyed by earthquakes or floods? Where can people find shelter when their homes are devastated by storms or war? How can communities survive when food crops continually fail? With vivid first-hand accounts and shocking photographs, Floods puts the reader in the center of the crisis by explaining what happens when a destructive flood occurs and how it affects the lives of ordinary people. It also explains how governments, aid agencies, and individuals from around the world can provide help in this time of need
