International Flood Fatalities (Flash Floods and Coastal Floods)
Main causes of Morbidity and Mortality: Direct impact-Drowning is the leading cause of death in case of flash floods and coastal floods. Fatal injuries during evacuation or during cleanup activities can occur. Injuries are observed but consist in small lacerations or punctures due to the presence of glass debris and nails. Electrical shocks can occur. At short term, the impact of floods on the transmission of communicable diseases is limited. An increased risk for water and vector borne diseases definitely exists. Nonetheless, outbreaks of communicable diseases are rarely observed. Indirect Impact: The impact on the health infrastructures and all lifeline systems can be massive and can result in food shortages and the interruption of basic public health services (water, etc). Contamination by toxic chemicals during floods is theoretically possible but no verifiable correlation has been observed or measured so far
Fatal injuries during evacuation or during cleanup activities can occur. Injuries are observed but consist in small lacerations or punctures due to the presence of glass debris and nails. Electrical shocks can occur. 
Private citizens also face significant risk of injury during cleanup. Officials talk of a “second wave” of injury following a natural disaster as citizens undertake to remove debris and repair buildings themselves…confirming what public health officials warned about a second wave of injuries, the most common diagnosis (26.2%) in reporting hospitals and clinics from September 8 to October 4 was injury. The major cause of injury was falling… Cutting and piercing injuries ranked third.
