How can the problem of floods be solved?
Do you think local administrative officials can take better and more effective steps to prevent floods during heavy rains? Share your suggestions that could help towards preventive measures before the onset of the monsoon that creates havoc annually in different regions of India.
Every year the monsoon brings heavy rain in large parts of India and a big quantity of this rain water drains into rivers and the continuous drainage of water causes water overflow in rivers which causes floods. Every year we see that many villages and cities face big problems due to floods. Water inundated everywhere causes heavy loss of crops, properties of people, especially, and muddy homes are destroyed. Many domestic animals and people also die.
I don't know if any preemptive steps by the local administration are taken prior to the flood. I don't think that evacuation of people from flood-affected areas, and arrangement of temporary shelters with food can be considered as satisfactory steps of the local administration or an announcement of a relief fund for the affected people is sufficient. We need to have solid policies and planning to cope with natural calamities.
I think if all the rivers are interlinked then this problem can be solved because many small rivers have dried up because of construction of dams. All extra quantity of water will flow into all small rivers which are connected to main rivers. In this way, hopefully, chances of floods will be reduced.
