Rivers can do a lot of damage. A river floods when too much water moves into its channel, and it cannot hold it all. Rivers may flood because of high tides, rain that is very heavy or that falls over many days, or a sudden temperature increase that melts ice and snow. If the flood is very severe, a river may carry a hundred times more water than usual, and it can destroy anything in its path.

During the rainy season, the rivers in Bangladesh flood, wrecking homes, swamping farms and killing many people.
