The Boscastle Flood

Today I am going to be telling you about the Bostcastle Flood that happened in 2004. Here are a few ways this flood could have been caused- 1. Stormy weather could've filled up the river, so finally the banks burst, because it couldn't hold anymore water. Another reason, could have been because of impermeable rock 9 impermeable rock is rock that can not absorb any water from the river, so it stays on the surface of the rock, causing a build up of water, which then turns into a flood.

This Flood effected many things such as - peoples houses being destroyed, which causes them to be homeless, people wont have jobs, so they earn money to get a new house. pavements are destroyed, so no where to walk, cars are destroyed, so they cant travel.
