Flood contaminated with chemicals can do more harm to forest compared to damages brought by drought or fire. Such flood can directly affect even photosynthesis.
Forests play a great factor in controlling flood. During rainy season, trees absorb water. Any flow of water is hampered by a cluster of trees; thus slowing down the flood’s descent.
Trees also hold back and delay the flow of rainwater to streams and rivers. The soil tend to have a more open area which results from greater amounts of organic matter. They are also drier during summer periods due to high water consumption of forests. These conditions enhance the ability of the soil to receive and store rainwater, which is commonly referred to as a ‘sponge effect’.

Delivery of goods to the market on time is the foremost priority of the company. What if the delivery is hampered by floods or the resupply of raw materials is delayed?

The line will keep on working as long the supply is uninterrupted. Factories are heavily depended on raw materials to manufacture their goods. Without the materials, the goods aren’t made.
Any delay in the deliveries could spell disaster in the production of the goods. The delays could come from a variety of reasons. One possibility is the accident on the roads or misdirections. It can be easily be remedied with follow-up calls to the driver. Once the location is established, an investigating team is dispatch to look into the situation.

Sewage and floodwater go hand in hand. When there’s flood, contaminants and germs flow with it. Here are some tips to avoid contacting them.
There is no avoiding the fact that contaminated sewage water will always flow with the floodwaters. It is where pathogens like bacteria, viruses, mold spores, or protozoans are present in large numbers in sewage wastes.
The extent of the contamination will depend on the size of the affected area. The greater the area the greater the contamination coverage and spread of the pathogens. Even flood waters that were not in contact with raw sewage can be contaminated with the microbiological organisms from animal wastes, street runoffs and natural soil.
