I know that droughts and floods are linked to some diseases. What are the names of these diseases?

They can be directly or indirectly related to floods and droughts.

floodwater contaminated with human waste definately increases the chance of spreading diseases like cholera. it is not 'mostly a third world issue' (like sparky said) , rather it common occurence where flooding occurs and people drink contaminated water.
