Floods are natural disasters that occur due to the high rainfall, causing the water that falls to gather in one place which eventually causes a large puddle in some areas. In addition, flooding can also be caused by a leaking water embankment, causing several places to be affected, usually this disaster is called a flash flood.
Actually, the affected by flooding are quite a lot, like when the land surface is lower than the water level, then also because of the very dense residential and office land, so the land for absorption or disposal of water is reduced and covered by buildings, or because many people do litter, so the drain become clogged, and many more.
For some countries like Indonesia, flooding is a natural disaster that takes a huge loss for the state. Whether it takes lives or damages facilities and infrastructure, it will require a large budget expenditure to restore it. For Indonesia, flooding is a natural disaster that often hits several areas in Indonesia every year.
