What are some diseases linked with droughts and floods?

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.

Thank you!

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. If i remember clearly, there were a few reported cases in New Orleans after Katrina.

to answer your question, feacal colliform bacteria and E.coli thrive in contaminated flood water and cause dysentry, typhoid,gastroenteritis, and sometimes hepatitis A on human contact.  (+ info)

So, if disease is caused by sin and some diseases are linked to bacteria, where did the bacteria come from?

I have seen Christians claim that without sin there would be no disease. But some diseases are caused by bacteria. But without evolution, how did those bacteria come to exist?

Perhaps you were wrong when you thought that Sin causes diseases.

One question for you, would you repeat that around a Pediatric Cancer Ward? Have you ever seen a three year old with Cancer, whose sin is involved there?  (+ info)

I'm gonna guess it's because generally overweight people aren't treating their bodies very well. So they not only are at risk for respiratory illnesses, but circulatory illnesses as well.  (+ info)
