In general, floods have no specific time duration. A flood's duration is influenced by a variety of factors, such as soil and ground conditions, topography, rainfall rate over time, and climate.

The most hazardous floods are flash floods, which combine extreme speed with a flood's destructive strength. Also, there is the flowing debris that is frequently swept up in the flow in flash floods.

Regardless of whether the community is located in inland or coastal areas or the size of the community, flooding can lower property values. A flooded property's value might decrease by 4%.
