(unpredictabl

-Larger

ECONOMIC
IMPACTS
-$13 billion worth of
damage for Asia
annually
-Increased by a
greater rate than
the frequency
(value of
infrastructure and
things at risk is
greater)- also more
things + more
people at risk ( due
to higher
population +
development)

Causes
-Global
Warming
-Ice meltsgetting into
the river
system and
increasing the
volume of
water in rivers

-Increased use of
landuse and
building on
floodplains- any
kind of damage is
going to make the
impact EVEN
greater.
