Ironically, the heavy rain continue to fall for a while where the forest used to be, washing away the topsoil that is no longer protected by the canopy of the trees or held in place by the root system. Nearby areas are sometimes flooded by the runoff, which the forest used to soak up, and nearby rivers are often silted with the top soil, gradually becoming clogged. Thus the river get shallower, their capacity to drain the flood waters is impaired, and the flooding along the banks becomes even worse. (If the well goes Dry)
