      Sea levels in coastal areas can be affected by a number of factors: tides, winds, waves, and even barometric pressure all play a role in the ebb and flow of the ocean. For the first time, however, a new study led by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) has shown that river outflow could play a role in sea level change as well.   With a swollen Mississippi River and above average local rainfall, much attention has been focused on the , acres of flooded land in the south Delta. But just below the surface in the.

      Historic flooding impacts the Arkansas River Basin with damage to homes, agriculture, roads, bridges and levees focused across eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas. Thousands of homes, cars and businesses were flooded due a combination of high rivers, levee failure and persistently heavy rainfall from May 20 through June. The land surrounding a river is called a flood plain. Coastal flooding, also called estuarine flooding, happens when a large storm or tsunami causes the sea to rush inland. Floods are the second-most widespread natural disaster on Earth, after wildfires. All 50 of the United States are vulnerable to flooding. Effects of Floods.

      Along the Upper and Middle Mississippi River: Flooding is a major economic risk in the Midwest. The Mississippi flood was the costliest flood in modern times after Hurricane Katrina. In , another flood in Cedar Rapids incurred over $10 billion in damages. These historic floods were caused by persistent heavy rainfall. By the end of June, many of the communities along the Mississippi River from Rock Island, IL to Cape Girardeau, MO were still experiencing major flooding. Prior to this flood event, much of the Upper Mississippi and Ohio River Basins had experienced wet conditions during the .
