Orissa- Outcomes Example <ul><li>Effect on Lives lost </li></ul><ul><li>Death due to epidemic is maximum followed by cyclone and drought. </li></ul><ul><li>Epidemics generally follow floods and more disastrous because of low economic level and accessibility of medical facilities. </li></ul><ul><li>Effect on Livelihood </li></ul><ul><li>. The number of victims are higher during floods in comparison to those under fire. </li></ul><ul><li>Fire makes people more vulnerable in terms of property and life but flood makes them more vulnerable in terms of livelihood, since agricultural lands get inundated. And Orissa being a predominantly agricultural economy gets shattered in times of floods. </li></ul>
