We have witnessed many floods around the world lately. It's Spring, so the snow melts in the temperate parts of the world, which causes more water to run. When you add Spring rainfall into the mix, then you get even more water running everywhere.
Traditionally, the extra water would flood in areas known as floodplains. The floodplains tend to be natural areas that would get flooded every once and a while, but wouldn't harm anyone...until humans started to develop on them.
Find out why governments do not want to help the people who buy or build homes in floodplains by listening to this episode.
