Hazus Canada

Hazus Canada

It's about the Conversations

We need to talk.

At the February 15, 2012 CanHUG meeting I played a podcast about using Hazus for modeling damage from Hurricane Irene. That didn't work. Technically it had issues. Playing a degraded sound quality through a telephone made the story uncomfortable to follow. Mainly, hearing a replay fell flat.

The story itself is useful. That is why I replayed it. Playing the podcast was an experiment, that if it worked, would increase access to stories. It didn't work.
