There are different types of floods and they are triggered by either natural or/and human factors. Floods become hazards when they cause damages to human society and ecosystems. Flood risk is a combination of flood probability and flood adverse consequences. Flood risk management involves flood risk analysis, evaluation and control. Some recent flooding examples in the UK are presented.
