Major Flooding In Five Countries

5 countries currently experiencing severe Floods: Greece, Lybia, Honduras, Uganda, Malaysia

Earthquakes in California, South Korea and Iraq, hurricanes in the Caribbean, tornadoes in the Midwest and everywhere a trailer park can be found. And while natural disasters like those tend to come in waves – literally if it’s a tsunami – we do not speak enough about flooding as if floods had became too ‘normal’. Meanwhile, record rainfall, stronger monsoon season and heavy storms are increasing in intensity around the world, leaving countries and their inhabitants ‘six feet under’ water in states of emergency. Here a compilation of 5 countries currently facing heavy floods:
