The knowledge on health effect and management for reducing health effect were rather low. The knowledge was found to be correlated with flood preparedness behavior (r = 0.263, p < 0.001) and The attitude was found to be correlated with flood preparedness behavior (r = 0.154, p = 0.029). Results suggested that knowledge should be provided by addressing health effect and management so that people have appropriate flood preparedness behavior.
