Flood is the natural disaster which causes massive destruction by over flowing of water. This huge amount of water come from heavy rain falls and snow melting that burden the rivers and results in flood.
Floods are common in Pakistan and affect Sindh and Punjab most. Monsoon season brings lots of heavy rainfall that increases water level of rivers of Sindh and Punjab and river basins sink into water.Whenever it comes it takes away many precious lives, take homes of many poor and left people in misery. Flood take away many houses of people, they are forced to live under open sky. The shortage of clean water and food takes away lives of many. The other major problem arise is the spreading of diseases. Water borne diseases become common and lack of medicine makes situation worse. Infrastructure damage causes transportation problems. People get stuck in their places until the rescue team arrives through helicopters or boats.
Natural disasters are not in the hand of man. They can’t stop them but can take measures to reduce the damage. Properties loss is amendable but a life loss is a loss forever. Government does take some action for it, but bringing back the life as it used to be takes years.
