The following text is for questions 11 to 14.
Flood is directly related to weather change. Rain falling at extremely high rates or for an unusually long period of time is the most frequent cause of flooding. Additionally, areas having experience a great deal of snow in winter are prone to springtime flooding when the snow and ice melt, especially if the thaw is relatively sudden. Furthermore, rainfall and snowmelt can sometimes combine to cause floods.
Floods occurs as a result of a unique combination of factors that only indirectly involve weather conditions. For instance, a low-lying beach area has potential to flooding whenever the ocean is at high tide. Exceptionally high tides may be attributed to a storm caused by a combination of factors, like low barometric pressure and high winds. Finally, floods sometimes can occur regardless of the climate. Seismic wave on the sea or large lakes that are caused by earthquakes is one of the examples. Volcanic heating and rapid melting of a snow pack a top a volcanic mountain or under a glacier, or even failures of natural or man-made dams are another examples.
