Technological Advancements Have Allowed for Better Flood Risk Analysis

Articles 10-17-2018

Flood risk is top of mind for many municipalities and residents within those communities because of severe storm events in recent years.

Texas suffered more flood-related fatalities in 2017 than any other state, by far, according to a National Weather Service report. Floods can strike at any time, and more work is being done to identify the flood-prone areas that exist within our communities, so we can incorporate mitigation efforts, make neighborhoods safer and reduce the loss of life.

Over the last year, Halff has written a series of articles about how flood-risk technology has advanced—particularly in the last 50 years. We have touched on the paper-to-digital revolution, rainfall historical records, modeling, and flood inundation mapping and forecasting.

Here is an opportunity to catch up on what you may have missed.
