A flood which is caused by heavy or excessive rainfall in a short period of time, generally under six (6) hours, leading to water that rises and falls quite rapidly The term may also be used to alert the public of non life threatening flooding of small streams, streets, storm drains, and low lying urban areas A flash flood can also be caused by the failure of a dam or from ice jams on waterways
