Dear Roberto, You make a good point, homes built on stilts can help reduce the risks in flood prone regions and is one approach used in some parts of the world to combat flooding.

I believe building home on stilts or elevated on posts with the living areas are above ground will lessen flood. Building the houses from the ground act as dams block flowing surface water resulting into flood. This is my observation and hopefully we can make a further study about this. Thank you.
