Where Floods Form
Floods form where lakes, oceans, and dry land are. Floods can cause lots of damage like in the Mississippi overflow in 1874. The flood was 50 miles wide and lots of people died from hunger, thirst, and sickness because there was not much food, clean water, and medicine.

How To Stop Flooding
Pros And Cons
Pros are good things about floods and cons are the bad things about floods. The pros are that you can still travel in floods by boat, floods can be good for some farms, you can still live a normal life in them, and not all of the area could be flooded. The cons are the water could make drinking water unable to drink, the water could make you very sick, and you could die by disease by the water, you could die by thirst, hunger, disease, and sickness.
The Potential Impact On Human Beings
Floods can effect our lives in a lot of ways. They can spread disease and disease could cause death so we would be very sick and have no way to stop the diseases. And people could drown in floods because they could go above the heads of some children. And floods could make you lose your friends and your family.
