A flood plain is an area of land adjacent to a body of flowing water such as a river or stream which in the event of extreme rain somewhere up the river has the potential to be flooded by an over abundance of water in the channel of the flowing body of water. Floods are not common events but they are most common in flood plains and should one happen it is all but certain that any property impacted by its waters will experience severe damage.
