Flooding Kills More People than Any Other Natural Disaster

Many people may not understand that in Natural Disasters more people drown than any other type of death. During Hurricanes, the wind kills a few as debris flies into them or knocks something over that they are under.Indeed Earthquakes take their toll this way too. Volcanoes generally warn us although they do kill people and so do these violent Tornadoes.

But most people in Natural Disasters die from drowning, mudslides, storm surges and killer Tsunami Waves. If more people were in better shape, better swimmers then perhaps they might survive better. If more people had floatation devices to wear during Hurricanes there would be many more survivors you see?.

Flooding always kills the most number of people statistically so if we want to fight Mother Nature and beat her at her own game and save lives then we will need to find ways to keep humans from drowning. In the 2005 Atlantic Tropical Hurricane Season more people died from drowning from storm surges or flooding than from the wind knocking stuff over or collapsing structures.Over 10,000 people died during that Hurricane Season and most were in Central America and Mexico due to flooding causing mudslides and washing out whole villages. We need to pay attention to the flooding if we are to save lives in natural disasters you see? Consider this in 2006.
