"Disasters that involve flooding are well-known sources of disease and are of great concern to public health officials. In addition to the commonly recognized waterborne diseases of typhoid, cholera and dysentery, a large host of infectious zoonotic organisms (those that can pass from animals to humans) may be encountered in flood-contaminated waters. Human disease has resulted from different kinds of water exposure: by drinking it, inhaling splashes or mists, having contaminated water enter through a wound, or having it splashed into the eyes, nose or mouth. However, the most common risk is from drinking contaminated water."
