Flood Definition

Flood: An abundant flow or outpouring


How might an organism adapt to sustain its species?

Short Term: Many species of reptiles, amphibians, and small mammals can find shelter from floods by just climbing above the water. Larger animals might be forced to temporarily relocate.

Long Term: some nesting birds are in trouble if flooding happens while they are in nesting time, but others will just nest someplace else.


How long does it take to recover from a flood?

It could take months, even years, just to recover from a flood.
