Hazus Flood Modelling

I led a team of people using FEMA’s Hazus-MH (Multi-Hazard) software to model flood risk to 2 dozen Illinois communities as part of a larger project to measure perceived vs actual risk of flood in those communities. Hazus can be finicky software, so we tried multiple routes, including Hazus’s standard modelling methods and a modified Quick Look method, to quantify the potential loss of property in each of these communities.
