Orissa- Outcomes Example Effect on Lives lost Death due to epidemic is maximum followed by cyclone and drought. Epidemics generally follow floods and more disastrous because of low economic level and accessibility of medical facilities. Effect on Livelihood . The number of victims are higher during floods in comparison to those under fire. Fire makes people more vulnerable in terms of property and life but flood makes them more vulnerable in terms of livelihood, since agricultural lands get inundated. And Orissa being a predominantly agricultural economy gets shattered in times of floods.
