The results of this research are flood hazard maps for 20 and 50 years flood and its comparison to the recent major flood events. Flood inundation modelled covered an area of Ha and 1, Ha, with maximum discharge calculated at Boro Weir as starting point are m3/s and 1, m3/s for 20 and 50 years flood case, :// The hydrological paradigm has been widely used across multiple places and scales (Ward et al., ), including large-scale flood hazard modelling in data-poor regions in Africa (Fig. 1). While flood inundation modelling has been successful in simulating historical events (Schumann et al., ), large uncertainties come into play when used to

Abstract. The present paper examines flood risk (composed of hazard, exposure, and vulnerability) in a range of spatial perspectives – from the global to the local scale. It deals with observed records, noting that flood damage has been increasing. It also tackles projections for the future, related to flood hazard and flood ://   triggered the European Union to put effort in research and policy making on flood risks. Research funds were made available for a large number of subsequent research projects and programmes, among which the Integrated Project FLOODsite, which was carried out from to

Flood losses in the United States have increased dramatically over the course of the past century, averaging US$ billion in damages per year for the year period ranging from to In terms of human fatalities, floods are the second largest weather-related hazard in the United States, causing approximately 80 deaths per year over the same :// Introduction: the British urban flood hazard -- section 2.

Flood is defined as a covering by water of land which is not normally covered by water. In the sense of "flowing water", the word may also be applied to the inflow of the tide.

Flooding may result from the volume of water within a body of water, such as a river or lake, which BOOK Project Overview: The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) was founded as part of the National Flood Insurance Act of The main objectives of the program are to reduce disaster costs, encourage owners of flood-prone property to be proactive in addressing their risks, and to discourage development in flood hazard areas throughout the United :// PROJECT SUMMARY.

Flash floods are a worldwide hazard, and are the number one hazardous weather related killer in the United States. They occur when heavy rainfall in a short period of time causes water to rapidly ://.
