There are factors which contribute to the occurrence of flash floods: rainfall intensity, duration, surface condition and topography.

Flooding is the most common environmental hazard worldwide.Dam and Levee Failures Dam and levees may be designed to contain a flood at a location on a water way that has a certain probability of a flood occurring in a specific year, i.e. If the flood is larger than the one predicted the structure built to contain it will be overtopped and will fail.This causes a sudden burst of water which causes a flash flood downstream.Floods can be categorised as either river floods or coastal floods.River floods are often atmospherically driven, caused by excessive precipitation.Each year in June, the Geiranger – From Fjord to Summit event occurs.

These tend to increase the rate of run off into water systems.

Friction between moving air and the water creates drag.
