    • Epidemics generally follow floods and more disastrous because of low economic level and accessibility of medical facilities.
    • Effect on Livelihood
    • . The number of victims are higher during floods in comparison to those under fire.
    • 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.
