Rain and Flooding

Parent Category: Meteorology and Weather
Rain is a type of precipitation which is readily absorbed by the ground. However, flooding might occur if there is a downpour or heavy rain. Flooding can result in damage to property, illness and even death.
Puerto Lopez de Micay, a small town near the coastline of western  Colombia, may be a new contender for the wettest inhabited place in  the world.  Between April 1960 and February 2012, an average annual rainfall  of just over 507 inches has been recorded at the weather  observation station...
About 90'' of potatoes on the coastal regions.
Atlanta in May has the most rainfall in Georgia.
Orography is mountainous terrain. Orographic precipitation is precipitation formed when air is forced to rise over mountains or at least large hills.
Here are the ones that I can find records for:    1972-1973  1982-1983  1986-1987  1991-1992  1994-1995  1997-1998  2002-2003  2004-2005  2009-2010

It depends upon the venting that is used, look for your vent pipes  on the roof and see if any are close to open windows. If you find a  particularly close vent pipe (and you home has several vent pipes)  you can add a "Studor Vent" to the top of the vent. A Studor vent  is the equivalent to a...
Trees stop the wind carrying rainy cloudy. where that wind stopped, it rains. so cutting trees or deforestation is to prevent rain in your region.
areas of rising air and low  pressure. When air rises it cools, and the moisture it contains  condenses out as clouds, which eventually produce precipitation.
Norway and Italy rain the most , 3rd is UK
any where a factory is producing smoke that contains a gas whichproduces an acid when combined with water. Carbon-dioxide does, butvery weakly. The main "acid rain" producer is Sulphur Dioxide,dissolving in water to form sulphurous acid.
1" of rain is roughly 10" of snow, depending on conditions. So, 5" inches of rain would be 50" of snow or 4' 2".
During condensation, the water vapor in the air condenses  into a cloud.
Probably not . Most fluids are not very compressible at all. I doubt there are any fluids, flammable or not, that are much more compressible than water. Maybe 50% more compressible (at best a factor of 2), but I very much doubt there are fluids that are 3-4 times as compressible as water. Gases on...
According to the Bible, the Flood covered the whole world. Certainly, it would not be possible for waters to cover Mount Ararat without covering the whole world - assuming that there is somehow enough water to achieve this. On the other hand, Egypt and other ancient civilisations continued right...

Their rice fields get flooded so their is famine The lose their homes cuz it full of water(depends on how high the water is) No school for kids= no education That's all I've goteasy. The answer is I don't know!!
A flood happens when water over flows from to much rain and over flows the city/village/etc........ also, when it rain for so long and rain so hard
probably Antarctica because it's so cold or Asia because there is known to be many droughts there.
It is different according to where you live
Evaporation: Water in big bodies (rivers, lakes, the ocean) and  transpiration (water from plants) enters the air as gas when it is  heated.   Condensation: The gas comes together in the air to form a cloud.    Precipitation: The cloud becomes colder and the water vapor becomes  liquid....
From wiki "Evaporation is caused when water is exposed to air and the liquid molecules turn into water vapor which rises up and forms clouds". This is because water vapor is lighter than air. The clouds then hold the water until a temperature drop causes the water to condense into droplets, which...
Water enters the group through absorption.
No, from what I know, Milford Sound does with about 68% more rain than Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland.
== Answer ==   Yes. The rain prevents the Pollen from from being air-borne.     Answer   Generally, yes. The pollen grains are "washed out" of the atmosphere.
Sleet is where a snowflake falls into a warmer surface layer below a cloud and melts, its starts to freeze again in the subfreezig surface layer of air, the partially melted snowflake or cold rain drop refreezes back into tiny translucent ice pellets known as sleet.   Freezing rain however, may...
I can't really answer that, since are ponds and lakes in all parts of the world, and so it varies greatly depending which lake you are talking about.

Tropical northern Australia has a huge rainfall in summer.Bellenden Ker in Far North Queensland has an average of 380 inch but it can peak at over 500. That's what you call rain.
It wouldn't be the same as it first was.
Well I don't know it depends where you are in the country or the world...
Yes, Seattle receives copious amounts of rainfall, but contrary to popular belief, it is not especially rainy compared to other cities. New York City, Boston, Atlanta, and Houston all receive more rainfall than Seattle.

The transfer of water through the ground and back to the sea is called precipitation.
Houses were destroyed, People were sent away to live in shelters. Big buildings crushed. Buisnesses such as pubs were ruined. Shop/Pubs (etc) owners are now in debt. Several people lost their cats and a woman lost her premature newborn twins due to her house flooding.
It can make lakes acidic which can kill the plant and animal life the lake harbours. It can also damage trees, plants and crops.
depend Totally preventable then no they are not. The effects can be alleviated by careful planning and management.
It starts with evaporation. The water gets evaporated and turns into clouds. Up highg in the sky it is ice pellets. When it rains the ice melts, when it snows, the collect dust particles and stuff...and when it ices, it stays the same.
No. Lighting produces a flash. Thunder is the sound the lightning  produces.
it is Convectional rain

Most of Brazil receives from 1000 to 1500 mm (39 to 59 in.)of rain per year. However, NE Brazil is semi-arid, hot and dry, with severe droughts except directly along the Atlantic coast. The Amazon basin (despite a 3-to-5-month dry season) receives as much as 2000 or even 3000 mm (79 to 118 in.)...
it receives 36.26 inches per year!
1) it rains! 2) WATER!
They bring freshwater to land organisms
No. Rain is a liquid, a solid is hard and sturdy like chairs, desks,computers, etc.
It is a Catastrophic Event.
The rays of the sun is the primal source of evaporation because they bring heat, which boils the water produces water vapor.
well drizzle and mist are not as heavy as rain is and do not produce as much moister as rain does.
the sources of drinking water are lakes rivers and even under ground springs.Some people even get there drinking water from wells.By Haley hughessome people get drinking water from wells , lakes,oceans or springs.but if you live in the city you just turn on the faucet.By h=anyonomous
Due to the high altitude of clouds and low climatic temperatures.
Fog or Clouds. Fog because fog is also called haze. And clouds because whats actually happening is the water droplets from your breath are slightly freezing. They freeze that fast because they're are so small and they are also mix with carbon dioxide coming out of your lungs.

A time period without rain would be called a drought.

Brazil gets between 60 and 80 inches of rain per year. The Amazon  rainforest in Brazil gets about 9 feet per year.
Yes. Excessive rain can lead to flooding which, worldwide, is one  of the most common causes of weather-related death. In areas with  steep slopes too much rain can trigger landslides. Heavy rain  reduces visibility, and it is possible to lose traction on a wet  road, which can make driving...
The water rests on the trees and then evaporates instead of going to the ground and flooding
