When you are hit with the news of an impending flood, it is easy to slip into panic mode and think that you are going to lose everything. However, there is one way you can always be prepared for this horrible natural disaster. At Krisis Flood Bags, we have come up with a solution to protect your indoor home contents and to always be prepared if and when a flood may occur. In this article, we will talk about what our dry bags are and how they can help to save your indoor home contents and business assets to achieve peace of mind.
What Causes Flooding?
Floods are the most frequent type of natural disaster and are characterised by water overflowing onto land that is normally dry. Floods have become increasingly more common and can happen anywhere – particularly if you reside in a flood zone.
There are three common types of floods, fluvial floods, commonly referred to as a river flood. There is also a pluvial flood, which is a flood independent of an overflowing body of water, caused by extreme rainfall and coastal Floods which are caused by intense windstorms that are brought on from tsunamis and tropical cyclones.
The climate crisis has caused flooding to become increasingly more common around the globe. With the ongoing issues of climate change, it can lead you to ask and query, ‘Am I at risk of flooding?’ The true answer is that it all depends on whether you are situated in a flood zone.
However, climate change has exacerbated other factors such as rising sea levels and ocean temperatures slowly increasing along with ice caps melting which all contribute to the sea levels. Sea levels are what is a major factor as to whether a storm will result in a flood, higher sea levels can amplify storm surges, and increase the risk of high-tide flooding.
Climate change is also responsible for the higher frequency of hurricanes which tear through countries time and time again. These events cause floods due to rainfall and storm surges which are stronger and heavier than normal. Along with this, climate change has amplified the temperature of the global atmosphere. It is becoming warmer, resulting in more moisture being held in the air, which needs to go through the water cycle, resulting in heavy rainfall.
