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. These procedures are frequently applied by communities interested in understanding the potential social and economic impacts that might occur as a result of flooding.

Who Should Attend

Hazus-MH users who want to generate a loss estimation based on a flood hazard.

Learn How To

  • Perform an analysis of a flood hazard based on a user-specific return period.
  • Perform an analysis of a flood hazard based on a user-provided stream discharge value.
