– Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become dangerous rivers. In mountain areas, harmful runoff may dash down valleys while increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides.
Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed.
– Floodwaters can enter many structures within multiple communities, some facilities becoming uninhabitable or washed away—many places where flood waters may cover escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of moving water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out.
