Abstract

Events and intensities of extreme precipitation appeared to have increased over the recent time. Previous studies indicated that extreme precipitation has brought significant loss of human life and caused indirect damage as a consequence of changing risk areas, distribution patterns and epidemic period for infectious, chronic diseases and mental disorders. Confronting extreme precipitation in future scenarios, better water literacy through public education has become critical in an era of rapid climate change.
