You don't say whether you have to write about a specific flood or floods in general. At the first link below, you can see some information about floods in general from the USGS. If your article must be about floods in general, it should be informative. Try to find as much information as possible about floods: What are they? What causes them? How dangerous are they? When are they likely to occur? Make sure you identify your sources. Begin your article with an attention-getting sentence to "hook" the reader. Remember that newspaper writing is succinct, so make your sentences concise and powerful.

If you have to write an article about a specific floor, the second two links are sample newspaper articles about floods. Right now, there is flooding in California, so there is a lot of information about flooding. You should read these articles as examples of how floods are presented in the news. Remember that a newspaper article should answer the questions: Who? What? When? Where? Why? How? Study the articles below or research other articles about floods to get some good ideas. Remember, when you write your own article, make it unique.
