SP&D staff are capable of completing HAZUS modeling for both flood and hurricane wind. The following provides additional information on the FEMA Hazus Flood Model.
The FEMA Hazus Flood Model allows planners and other practitioners to carry out a wide range of flood hazard analyses, including:
The flood loss estimation methodology consists of two modules that carry out basic analytical processes: flood hazard analysis and flood loss estimation analysis. The flood hazard analysis module uses characteristics, such as frequency, discharge and ground elevation to estimate flood depth, flood elevation and flow velocity. The flood loss estimation module calculates physical damage and economic loss from the results of the hazard analysis.
