The rise in the reported number of flood events over recent decades results mainly from better reporting and from land-use changes. The effect of climate change is projected to intensify the hydrological cycle and increase the occurrence and frequency of flood events in large parts of Europe. However, estimates of changes in flood frequency and magnitude remain highly uncertain. In regions with reduced in snow accumulation during winter, the risk of early spring flooding would decrease.

    In our opinion, the number of floods is not significant. The result will be clearer if flow data related to the river basin are used.
