Tidal flooding, also known as sunny day flooding or nuisance flooding, is the temporary inundation of low-lying areas, especially streets, during exceptionally high tide events, such as at full and new moons. The highest tides of the year may be known as the king tide, with the month varying by location.

A natural disaster is a major adverse event resulting from natural processes of the Earth; examples are floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, and other geologic processes.

One of the worst flood disasters happened in November 1970, when a storm in the Bay of Bengal caused strong winds and waves at sea. These tidal waves made a moving wall of water, which then hit thousands of houses built on the low, flat land where the River Ganges meets the sea. Whole villages disappeared, and nearly one million people lost their lives. At the time of this disaster, Bangladesh was called East Pakistan, and the central government of Pakistan was in Karachi, 2,400 kilometres away.

Floods are among Earth's most common–and most destructive–natural hazards. No other kind of natural disaster in America has caused more death and destruction than floods. Learn about different kinds of floods and what causes them. Floods are among Earth's most common–and most destructive–natural hazards. Floods 101.

Part of a series which looks at natural disasters from an environmental standpoint and discusses how far human interference can effect such disasters. This book looks at tidal waves and other causes of flooding and discusses whether pollution and global warming increase the occurrence of tidal waves and flooding.
