Floods are quite common among natural disasters and may cause a large amount of physical, social and psychological destructions. The magnitude of the flood, the extent of loss of resources, fear of future occurrences are quite unpredictable aspects which creates anxiety, panic, depression and adds on to the existing level of stress of the survivors. These flood-related extreme experiences consequently have a subjective component, which negatively affects individual's emotions, cognitions & psychological adjustment as well as hinders physical & social developments. Such extreme events and their psychosocial consequences upon survivors has become a focus of attention in the current research. A careful assessment of the physical, psychological, and social aspects of the survivors is essential to plan out effective help aids and rehabilitation programs for the at-risk population.
