Kerala's western coastal belt is relatively flat compared to the eastern region,  and is criss-crossed by a network of interconnected brackish canals, lakes, estuaries ,  and rivers known as the Kerala Backwaters .  The state's largest lake Vembanad , dominates the backwaters; it lies between Alappuzha and Kochi and is about 200 km 2 (77 sq mi) in area.  Around eight percent of India's waterways are found in Kerala.  Kerala's 44 rivers include the Periyar ; 244 kilometres (152 mi), Bharathapuzha ; 209 kilometres (130 mi), Pamba ; 176 kilometres (109 mi), Chaliyar ; 169 kilometres (105 mi), Kadalundipuzha ; 130 kilometres (81 mi), Chalakudipuzha ; 130 kilometres (81 mi), Valapattanam ; 129 kilometres (80 mi) and the Achankovil River ; 128 kilometres (80 mi). The average length of the rivers is 64 kilometres (40 mi). Many of the rivers are small and entirely fed by monsoon rain.  As Kerala's rivers are small and lacking in delta , they are more prone to environmental effects. The rivers face problems such as sand mining and pollution.  The state experiences several natural hazards like landslides, floods and droughts. The state was also affected by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami .
