Manitoba Flood Risk

Working space for the Manitoba Hazus flood loss estimate project (2013-2017)

The objective is to provide flood disaster risk reduction decision support for the province of Manitoba. A pilot Hazus Flood risk assessment study will be conducted in the southern floodplain areas where several municipalities have experienced a number of severe/destructive floods in recent years. The area represents an excellent candidate for the initiation of a study that accommodates the comparison of actual damage data against the typical flood damage curves embedded in Hazus.

Hazus Flood seminar

Hazus flood webinar - a Canadian perspective by Kevin Mickey

Hazus Users Conference 2013

5-7 August 2013.

Dave, Kevin, Christina and Brendan were breathing sighs of relief on Monday morning as the delegates to the 2013 Hazus Users Conference started showing up at the reception desk. With Eric Berman, they greeted friends and colleagues congregating at the government centre in Indianapolis to share their stories about doing Hazus and ways to make it better. Eventually over a hundred people showed up, mostly from the eastern US. The rest came from further afield in the US, Canada, and Singapore.  The meeting was different than 3 years ago in Indianapolis.
