As we’ve seen in flooding events in Houston and Nashville, sometimes an area is subjected to intense amounts of precipitation that are far in excess of the “maximum” precipitation expected for an area. With such an intense volume of water, previously “safe” areas like small creeks, streams, and even ponds can quickly turn into floodwaters.
While FEMA’s flood zone data is great for “normal” flood return periods, what happens when an unusual amount of rain falls at your property?
For these unusual events, HazardHub provides our Enhanced Flood Risk Model and our Catastrophic Flood Risk Model:
- Enhanced Risk Model – What happens when the potential maximum precipitation falls on an area?
- Catastrophic Risk – What happens when TWICE the potential maximum precipitation falls on an area?
