Flooding is the overflow of excess water from a water body onto adjacent lands. FEMA more specifically defines a flood as a general and temporary condition of partial or complete inundation of normally dry land areas from (1) the overflow of inland or tidal waters or (2) the unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source.
One or more water bodies can contribute to flooding at a given site — a river, stream, ocean, bay, lake, pond, storm water retention/detention area, etc. — depending on local topography and hydraulic/hydrologic conditions.
