Introduction to Using Hazus-MH to Assess Losses from a Riverine Flood Hazard
This course explains the process of defining a riverine flood hazard and performing loss estimations using Hazus-MH. While Hazus-MH offers a wide range of options for defining a flood hazard, this course focuses on the two options that require the least amount of user input: defining a flood hazard based on a return period, and defining a flood hazard based on a stream discharge.
