  • Verification of flood damage modelling using insurance data

    This paper presents the results of an analysis using insurance data for damage description and risk model verification, based on data from a Danish case. The results show that simple, local statistics of rainfall are not able to describe the variation in individual cost per claim, but are, however, feasible for modelling the overall cost per day. The study also shows that in combining the ...

  • Loss and damage from flooding in the Gambela region, Ethiopia

    In this article, we explore the ways in which people in the Ethiopian Gambela region dealt with the extreme flood that occurred in 2007, with specific attention to the associated loss and damage, i.e., the impacts that people were not able to avoid through preventive and coping measures. We found that all of the 431 surveyed households took preventive measures such as the construction of ...

  • Flood risk modelling based on tangible and intangible urban flood damage quantification

    The usual way to quantify flood damage is by application stage-damage functions. Urban flood incidents in flat areas mostly result in intangible damages like traffic disturbance and inconvenience for pedestrians caused by pools at building entrances, on sidewalks and parking spaces. Stage-damage functions are not well suited to quantify damage for these floods. This paper presents an alternative ...

  • Uncertainty in urban flood damage assessment due to urban drainage modelling and depth-damage curve estimation

    Due to the increased occurrence of flooding events in urban areas, many procedures for flood damage quantification have been defined in recent decades. The lack of large databases in most cases is overcome by combining the output of urban drainage models and damage curves linking flooding to expected damage. The application of advanced hydraulic models as diagnostic, design and decision-making ...

  • Modelling and Managing Flood Risk and Flooding

    The UK’s prestigious Royal Society recently held a discussion group on the subject of Flood Management and Climate Change. With much of the Northern Hemisphere approaching the winter flooding season, we spoke to Wallingford Software’s David Fortune to find out the role of modelling in flood forecasting and flood management. He set out his ideas as follows: We must remember first that, while we ...

  • A Methodological Approach to Land Use-Based Flood Damage Assessment in Urban Areas: Prague Case Study

    In recent years, extreme river flooding has occurred in several regions of Europe. This phenomenon, which includes the dramatic flood events in central Europe in summer 2002, is mainly due to an increase in the vulnerability of regions to flooding. As a result, there is currently great public interest in this issue, and it is necessary to intensify research activities in order to understand ...

  • After the flood - preventing mold

    Beyond the direct water damage from a flood, there can be short term and long term problems with mold growth, whether the building is commercial or residential. The source of the water is the first important issue. Consider the following: 1.) If the flood is from surface water flooding such as heavy rains, hurricanes, and overflowing rivers this means dirt and debris. This ...

  • Developing optimum solutions to flooding

    Developing optimum solutions to flooding With a very long period of wet weather in the summer overlaid by intense rainfall, 2007 was the wettest summer in the UK on record. This unusual weather pattern resulted in very high localised runoff, with three events in England exceeding the 1 in 100 year return period over that time – some of the worst flooding that has ever occurred in ...
