HVRI Responds to SC Flooding Disaster
HVRI has been engaged with SCEMD and FEMA starting on Friday, October 2, 2015 in the on-going support of the response and recovery effort to the statewide rain and flooding event. Here is a partial list of our activities.
1) At the request of SCEMD, we are running the FEMA's multi-hazard risk assessment software HAZUS for every South Carolina county for the 100 year flood event using a 30-mile stream density. We have completed nine counties and are processing another ten. These HAZUS runs are computationally intensive and take about two days per county to run.
