Groundwater flooding occurs when the earth becomes completely saturated with water. Rainfall naturally soaks into the ground and travels through soil and rock pores to reach rivers, however prolonged heavy rainfall can cause the groundwater level to rise and eventually reach the surface.
Groundwater can usually first be identified in buildings with basements and cellars.
