This study was conducted to evaluate the main causes and damages of flood (2010) in district Charsadda. Most of the villages in Charsadda District are prone to floods during summer mainly because of torrential rainfall, melting of snow and ice, deforestation and over grazing in the catchment areas of rivers flowing across Charsadda. Overflowing the natural levees, the 2010 flood caused tremendous damages to houses, agriculture, standing crops and other infrastructures. The houses were damaged and resulted the displacement of 5500 families. All governmental and private health facilities and water supply schemes were damaged completely. Based on the study findings, it is recommended that flood relief channels and embankments should be improved along with the active flood areas to minimize the flood hazards.
