Tim Sweeney, Natural Resources Conservation Service. This session will provide an overview of the applicability of non-structural measures and the array of agency authorities available to implement them. Examples of completed non-structural projects that include flood warning systems, environmental benefits, etc. will be presented and discussed as well as programs from Federal agencies (e.g. USACE, USGS, FEMA, HUD, NRCS, etc.) that fund implementation of non-structural measures.. The USACE Floodplain Management Services and Planning Assistance to States programs can provide important services throughout the flood risk management life-cycle. These programs can support more effective flood risk management through pre- and post-flood planning and technical services, and can serve as important components of a state or communitys overall flood risk management plan. Examples of recently successful implementation, including examples of leveraging these programs to foster greater benefits, will be ...
Addressing water management opportunities and challenges in flood and drought scenarios in urban and regional settings is a global occurrence. In Queensland, the significant impacts of extreme flood events (2010-11 and 2013) has resulting in a focus for government agencies and communities to seek solutions that can provide long term benefits and enhance community resilience to future extreme events. Water management professionals from the Netherlands and Queensland are invited to share their knowledge and expertise in integrated flood risk management (IFRM) through this Community of Practice (CoP). The role of this CoP is to provide foundational awareness, skills and expertise to Queenslands professionals and organisations who are involved in IFRM. This platform provides an opportunity for flood risk management initiatives in Queensland to be planned, developed and implemented based on an understanding of effective approaches used in the Netherlands and other parts of the world and adapted to ...

Watch this video interview to learn more about the latest trends, challenges and opportunities in the field of urban flood risk management.. In the summer of 1742, two typhoons swept across Japan in quick succession, bringing torrents of heavy rain and flooding major rivers. Records from a young monk who witnessed the floods describe a muddy wave destroying levees and sweeping through villages. As levees and rivers collapsed, floodwaters rose in Edo, Japans largest city and political capital, abating only days later, and resulting in fatalities of a reported 6,000 in the city.. While floods were not an uncommon occurrence in Japan, the Great Kanto Flood of 1742 was the worst flood in the countrys early modern era, and the first flood disaster in its largest urban area. It highlighted the river engineering changes that had facilitated the growth of Edo, but also increased the citys vulnerability to floods.. Today, while the threat of flooding remains high for Edos successor, Tokyo, Japans ...

Flood resilient construction has become an essential component of the integrated approach to flood risk management, now widely accepted through the concepts of making space for water and living with floods. Resilient construction has been in place for centuries, but only fairly recently has it been recognized as part of this wider strategy to manage flood risk. Buildings and the wider built environment are known to play a key role in flood risk management, and when buildings are constructed on or near to flood plains there is an obvious need to protect these. Engineered flood defense systems date back centuries, with early examples seen in China and Egypt. Levees were first built in the United States some 150 years ago, and were followed by the development of flood control acts and regulations. In 1945, Gilbert Fowler White, the so-called
Climate change projections indicate that total rainfall will increase in winter in the UK and, although total summer rainfall is expected to decrease, models are predicting that there will be a five-fold increase in high intensity rainfall events in summertime by 2100. As this will increase the likelihood of fluvial, pluvial and groundwater flooding the Committee on Climate Change has advised that more ambitious adaptation measures are needed to manage flood risk in the UK. In many areas adaptation measures will include natural flood management approaches, (ie reducing flood risk by storing water, slowing water, increasing flow connectivity and increasing soil infiltration).. Natural flood management is part of flood policy; the Flood & Water Management Act (England & Wales) 2010 advocates NFM and the Flood Risk Management Act (Scotland) 2009 requires that NFM approaches are considered when designing flood management schemes. The recently published National Flood Resilience Review also notes ...

Texas has the highest number of flood fatalities and vehicle-related flood fatalities in the United States. This study provides a detailed analysis of vehicle-related flood fatalities in Texas from 1959 to 2019. The data was compiled from the Storm Data publication maintained by the National Weather Service and includes demographics of the victims, dates, flood types, roadway types, and fatality location. There were 570 vehicle-related flood fatalities during the study period, with almost all fatal accidents resulting in one fatality. These fatalities represent 58% of total flood fatalities. The spatial analysis reveals that most counties with high vehicle-related flood fatalities are clustered in Flash Flood Alley. These counties accounted for over 80% of the fatalities. The annual distribution of these fatalities follows a statistically significant decreasing trend. Monthly distribution of vehicle-related fatalities follows that of rainfall in the Flash Flood Alley, with flash floods causing 61% of
The human costs and property damages resulting from flooding in the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) have long been key issues of concern. Nationwide floods in 1998 prompted the government to launch a programme to strengthen flood protection in major river basins and increase investment in flood control works. This resulted in the implementation of a new flood management policy and the passing of floodplain zoning and land use control legislation (Flood Control Law, 1998), which served to help the PRC move towards a natural resource management approach as a long-term holistic solution to flood risk. It also signaled a shift from the countrys dependence on structural measures for flood damage control to a more balanced approach incorporating both structural and non-structural methods.. The long-term objective of this study is to promote sustainable, economic and social development through effective flood management measures. The more immediate goal is to develop an integrated flood management ...

The term flooding is often associated with a stream overflow or a marine flood, runoff-floods is rarely considered, and today suffers from a lack of knowledge and control of the phenomenon. This paper, presents a geographic information system [email protected] - Flooding by Intense Pluvial Runoff (French acronym), which is a new tool to mapping flooding by runoff as a tool for decision-making by mapping runoff flooding in Gareat El Taref catchment (Northeast Algeria), with identifying the area of production, transfer and accumulation of flood.. Us results, we have cards represent the potential of a territory to generate the various hydraulic dynamics of runoff: the runoff production card, the runoff transfer, the runoff accumulation card, the runoff-flooding card.. A visual simulation on the flood risk card indicates that the areas with an important runoff flood risk are the communes of Khenchela Oum El Bouaghi Ain El Beida and Fkirina. Moreover, the roads that join Khenchela with Ain El Beida and with Oum ...

The Navigation strategy is supported by optimized engineering measures to increase the fairway depth. Input to the EU Flora-Fauna-Habitat Directive is given through improved measures ...
Image of Wainfleet flooding 2019 (Richard Hardesty). Locals are the experts in flood risk management, says major water management authority ADA (Association of Drainage Authorities). Supporting and increasing local partnership working can minimise devastating flood damage caused by embankment failure and will help to maintain water availability in times of drought.. Climate change is a reality, and we have to accept that with more extreme weather conditions, there will be increased frequencies of embankment overtopping,explains Innes Thomson, chief executive of ADA, the organisation representing drainage, water level and flood risk management authorities in the UK.. Overtopping is the term used to describe the point at which water through a river channel flows over the top of an embankment at times of excessive flow. This exerts an unusual and huge pressure on the point of overtopping which can result in the embankment failing, increasing the volume of water released into the surrounding ...
The flood insurance industry in India is facing a serious crisis.. The average premium is only Rs. 8 per lakh.. There is no flood insurance bureau for people living in the flood-prone regions of the country.. But a flood insurer can charge an annual premium of Rs. 10,000 for a single-family home and Rs. 1,500 for a larger one.. The average rate of premium has risen by 50 per cent since 2015.. In 2017, the insurance regulator had proposed to charge a premium of up to Rs. 6,000 per annum for flood insurance in a single family home, but that was scrapped by the government.. Now, the government is proposing a one-year-period for flood coverage of up in the range of Rs 6,500 to Rs 7,000.. The flood insurance regulator has suggested that insurance agents be allowed to charge premiums for flood and drought damage, but there are concerns about the effect this will have on the flood insurance market.. The flood insurers, especially those dealing with disaster related insurance, will have to make a ...
August 1, 2003, was the 10th anniversary of the Flood of 1993, referred to by many as the Great Flood or Record Flood of 1993. The Great Flood of 1993 constituted the most costly and devastating flood to ravage the United States in modern history. Levees were broken, farmland, town, and transportation routes were destroyed, thousands of people were forced to abandon their homes, and 47 people died as a direct result of the flood.. The Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, reported that the flood caused enormous human suffering. At least 75 towns were completely inundated, some of which have not been rebuilt. The Great Flood of 1993 inundated more than 20 million acres in nine states. Approximately 54,000 people had to be evacuated from flooded areas at some time during the flood, and approximately 50,000 homes were destroyed or damaged. Losses were estimated at 15 to 20 billion dollars.. In May 2003 ten years after the flood, the US Department of Homeland ...

B17 River and coastal flood plains are valuable ecological resources which provide habitat for a wide range of plants and animals, many of which are unique. A number of the priority habitats identified in the Northern Ireland Biodiversity Strategy are associated with floodplains. In addition, flood plains are often important landscape assets and the location of features of the archaeological and built heritage. Flood events can damage ecosystems, habitats, heritage and landscape assets, and development can exacerbate such damage. The natural regulation of floodwater limits ecological damage caused by flooding, while pondage areas provide for the trapping and deposition of sediments and recycling of the nutrients from run-off ...
Flood Project What is a flood? Where do floods happen? Why do floods happen? When do floods occur? Heavy rainfall Heavy rainfall is one of the causes of flooding. This way of flooding occurs more often than others. Some floods that are caused by heaviy rainfall happen during the monsoon season. Floods can also happen when a dam bursts due to heavy rain. The river/lake that is dammed gets too full and the dam bursts. This can cause floods, that could be fast and dangerous. El Niño is a phenonenon that makes Pacific winds blow east to west. The winds blow warm from South America towards Indonesia and Australia occuring in rainy, tropical climates in these regions that can cause floods, were the west coast of South America remains cool. El Niño events occur every 4 to 5 years and result in a dramatic reduction in the strength in winds ...

Freshwater flooding is expected to become increasingly common as climate change intensifies the hydrological cycle, affecting the lives millions of people living in flood-prone areas across the world.. However, such increases in flood magnitude and frequency are not purely climate-related. Widespread human disturbance alters fluvial networks and the capacity of river channels to contain flood flows.. In the first part of this seminar, Dr Louise Slater (Loughborough University), will demonstrate that flood risk can only be fully understood by taking both hydrologic and geomorphic changes into account. She will present research quantifying the influence of changing river channel capacity on flood hazards in hundreds of rivers across the USA and UK, drawing on historic date.. Focussing on a few key locations, she will show that these changes in river channels can be caused by a variety of management decisions and land use changes upstream.. These analyses reveal that geomorphic changes are ...
The Standard Flood Hazard Determination Form (SFHDF) is required for all federally backed loans and is used by lenders to determine the flood risk for their building loans. The SFHDF is authorized by the National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 1994 (NFIRA) and is imposed on lenders by their regulatory entities, not by FEMA. FEMA oversees the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) which makes federally administered flood insurance available throughout the United States and is responsible for development, updates and making the form available to users. Implementation of the mandatory flood insurance purchase requirements of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973 and the National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 94, as amended, is the responsibility of the various Federal agencies that regulate lenders. Please contact your regulator or lender to determine their requirements. This form may be locally reproduced. The current version of the SFHDF has an expiration date of October 31, 2018 and the ...
article{45, author = Liman, H. M. and Ayodele, A. D. and Suleiman, Y. M. and Alabi A. A., abstract = A flood risk and vulnerability assessment of Kogi state, Nigeria was investigated. The objective is to identify the risk lives and vulnerability level of the settlement to flood disasters. Geospatial techniques using remote sensing data and GIS was utilized in the analysis. Results indicate that, majority of the settlements are very vulnerable to flooding. It can be seen from the second flood risk map. After the overlay function has been made (overlaying of major settlements, stream network, digital elevation model, river and stream network buffer). It was observed that most of the settlements in Lokoja and environs are located on and around the stream network and on the flood plain. Any discharge or release of water in any form over this terrain, will lead to accumulation of water in the stream network expanding its course and increase in sea level rise, which may likely result to devastating ...
In this paper, we study the effect of displacement of population into cities on urban conflict in developing countries. To do so, we construct a novel measure of exposure to floods, using data on more than 3,300 flood events worldwide, as an exogenous source of population displacement. We combine this with city level observations of more than 9,000 urban social disorder events. Exposure to floods is found to be associated with higher likelihood and frequency of urban social disorder. Our evidence suggests that the effects of floods on urban disorder occur mainly through the displacement of population into large cities. Exploring the information on urban disorder events in more detail, we find that the association between city growth and urban disorder is strongest for events related to public service provision, wages and food prices..

The China flash flood investigation and evaluation database (CFFIED) covers important information needed for China’s flash flood warning. This paper uses a statistical induction method, inference formula method and standardized unit hydrograph method to explore its principle, characteristics, and key steps. Then based on the field investigation and the latest data on the flash flood, the Hunjiang District in northeastern China was selected as the research area. Firstly, three typical riverside villages, Xiangmo-1 and Sanchahe-3, Shangqing-4, were screened, and the flash flood warning indicators (e.g., water level, flow rate, critical rainfall) in the CFFIED were updated. Then, the maximum error of the flood peak, estimated by the inference formula method and the water level flow relationship method, is only 10.6%, which indicates that the predicted flood peak flow has high credibility and can check and identify the early warning index; the Manning formula is more accurate in calculating the water

The Minsmere Valley on the Suffolk Coast is at risk from both fluvial and coastal flooding. Although it is a rural area with a limited number of properties at risk, protection against flooding is required as much of the hinterland is designated under international legislation - the area is designated as a Special Protection Area (SPA), Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and Ramsar wetland site.. Being a coastal location, the designated features and species are of both coastal and freshwater interest. The existing defences and gravity drained tidal sluice are under pressure due to sea level rise. The talk outlines how a long term plan was developed for adaptation to coastal change and focuses on the Minsmere Flood Risk Management scheme that was completed in 2012.. A summary of continuing management is also provided.. ...
The innovative design approach made available by using Flood Risk Management methods (methodology that integrates hydraulic sizing with the assessment of performance characteristics) - which is a significant novelty in the field of design of large-sized linear infrastructures as well as of maintenance of existing infrastructures - has been introduced in the design of the hydraulic supervision of railway lines and of the regions they cross. The opportunity of applying it derives from the use of the most state of the art techniques for environmental remote sensing in land analysis (ground laser scanner measurements and LiDAR flights) as well as the use of modern 2D hydrological/hydraulic calculation programs for assessing the behaviour of flooded waterways. Recently, the study of geomorphological processes and of river morphology have been added to the project standards in order to take into account the development trends of the waterways ...

Soil erosion is particularly intense in mountainous subtropical regions where heavy storms result in the production of large quantities of suspended sediment, leading to both on-site and off-site siltation problems and conveying contaminants and biological compounds along streams. To implement efficient controls on sediment transfer, it is necessary to monitor suspended matter loads and determine whether sediments are directly exported from the catchment during a given flood or re-suspended from deposits left by previous floods. Determination of sediment residence time in catchments can be performed combining fallout radionuclides (Be-7, Pb-210 and Cs-137) measurements in both rainfall and suspended sediments, but prerequisites for their use as tracers during flood events are still required. We conducted experiments along a network of nested catchments with area increasing from 0.12 to 6.15 km$^2$ , and sampled rainfall and suspended sediment loads during a flood that occurred at the beginning of the
Climate change has led to concerns about increasing river floods resulting from the greater water-holding capacity of a warmer atmosphere1. These concerns are reinforced by evidence of increasing economic losses associated with flooding in many parts of the world, including Europe2. Any changes in river floods would have lasting implications for the design of flood protection measures and flood risk zoning. However, existing studies have been unable to identify a consistent continental-scale climatic-change signal in flood discharge observations in Europe3, because of the limited spatial coverage and number of hydrometric stations. Here we demonstrate clear regional patterns of both increases and decreases in observed river flood discharges in the past five decades in Europe, which are manifestations of a changing climate. Our results-arising from the most complete database of European flooding so far-suggest that: increasing autumn and winter rainfall has resulted in increasing floods in ...

The Mississippi River is one of the worlds great rivers and is the only river in the United States to be formally recognized by Congress as both a nationally significant ecosystem and commercial navigation system. The river has a long and colorful history and has played a significant role in shaping the regions social and economic development. However, the Mississippi River is not a single homogeneous unit. From its source in northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico one can identify at least five distinct Mississippi Rivers based on geomorphology and hydraulics. Concomitant with these hydrological differences in the river are variations in navigation and flood risk management that result in divergent river management strategies. Levees, wing dikes, floodways, dams, pools and locks are some of the different structures that are in place on various reaches of the river to address the concerns of flood risk management and navigation. The effects of river regulation, floodplain development and ...
Flood hit people of Kerala repair their damaged road and build a drainage system!. People of Kerala are no strangers to monsoon rains but last years floods has changed a lot of things.. This year monsoon rains soon turned into floods for people of Onbatham Mile village in Idukki in Kerala.. Noticing Goonjs Cloth for Work project going on in a nearby village, people of this small flood hit village approached Team Goonj. They shared how their main village road was badly damaged with potholes and water logging due to recent floods and landslides and due to lack of a drainage structure. As a result going to the nearby hospital, schools or college was proving especially difficult for the elderly, sick and children. When Goonjs local team mobilized and motivated the villagers, 16 people set out to repair the steep road. Working tirelessly, even in heavy rain, they filled the road gaps with soil and also created a new drainage channel along the road. Every person who participated in this work was ...
So it is easy to see that flood geology is at odds with most of the observations of North American geology. EZ is one model that has been proposed to reconcile these observations with the flood model, but EZ only works if inappropriate ad hoc modifications are made to overcome problems such as those posed by the need to transport ecological communities over large distances and subsequently deposit them mostly intact.. Sedimentary, my dear Watson. Flood geologists have recognized several other problems for the EZ model. For example, one would expect serious erosion and transport of sediment in the worldwide flood. Acknowledging that most present-day sediment cover is found on the cratons of the continents and that the surrounding ocean basins have very little sediment contained within them, Kurt Wise and others (1994) concede that, if the Flood had occurred, the continental rock should have been eroded and subsequently deposited as sediments in the ocean basins - which is clearly not the case. ...
and recommendations available for public review. DOVER (June 15, 2012) - Draft standards and recommendations to reduce flooding impacts in Delaware through improved flood plain management and local drainage codes is now available for public review and comment through July 6, 2012. Recommendations were developed by the Floodplain and Drainage Advisory Committee (FDAC) created by Senate Bill 64 that became law last year.. The legislation, sponsored by Senator David B. McBride, Jr. (D-Hawks Nest), charged the FDAC with providing guidance to DNREC and Secretary Collin OMara in the development of minimum standards and recommendations for best practices for flood plain management and drainage codes that will be reviewed and potentially adopted by local governments. Land use decisions in Delaware are made locally, Secretary OMara said. These standards are not mandates, but a body of options that can be assessed by local governments for use in their communities. With a changing climate, more ...

SYDNEY - Australias spectacular Great Barrier Reef is under threat from massive floods swamping the countrys northeast which are pouring harmful debris and sediment into the sea, an expert said Wednesday.. The full impact of the floods, which are rushing huge volumes of water into the pristine surrounds of the worlds largest coral reef, is not yet known, but the influx will stress the colourful corals, said Michelle Devlin.. This does impact on the reef. It just impacts on the reefs resilience so you get very stressed corals, you get stressed sea grass, Devlin, a researcher at James Cook University in northern Queensland, told AFP.. So lets just say that a big cyclone came along, knocked them all out. They might not recover so well because they are already very stressed.. Devlin said while the rivers have always poured into the reef, the floods were no longer bringing just rainwater but also sediment, nutrients and pesticides.. Top soil will run straight off into the water and that ...

Members of Missouris congressional delegation are asking for the implementation of flood protection measures along the Missouri River.
Locations of landslides, bank failures, and floodplain deposition during recent intense flooding in Vermont and Colorado (USA) were spatially nonuniform, indicating that some reaches are more prone to these types of geologic hazards. These three key flood effects signal redistribution of sediment across landscapes, reflecting hillslope-channel coupling and the sources and/or sinks of material. We show that spatial gradients in total stream power (Ω) provide critical additional information beyond at-a-point Ω magnitudes for predicting which reaches are likely to be susceptible to these hazards during floods. Field tests in four rivers (watershed areas 0.8-180 km2) indicate that downstream increases in Ω coincide with erosion and mass wasting into channels, and downstream decreases in Ω are associated with floodplain deposition. Our analytical approach, supported by field evidence, predicts geologic hazards and, more broadly, sources and sinks of material along rivers. These are critical ...
According to K.Bozumbayev, 307 hydrological stations, 339 meteorological stations and posts, 2 avalanche research stations are monitoring the operational hydrometeorological information. In the event of sudden changes at inwater bodies, all hydrological stations are switching to more frequent monitoring - every 4 hours.. The preliminary forecast of the water content of the rivers of Kazakhstan for the period of high water was prepared and sent to the concerned authorities. The main forecast for the flood period will be made in early March 2017.. According to Minister, water content of rivers in Akmola and North Kazakhstan regions (Yesil, Silety, Shagalaly, Zhabai, Kalkutan) during the flood period is expected to be 30-50% more than normal, possibly exceeding the dangerous marks of water levels, flooding and flooding.. The flow of water in Kostanai region to a cascade of reservoirs on Tobol river is expected to be 15-20% more than the norm. Due to the significant moisture accumulation in the ...

The leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has commiserated with the victims of recent flood disaster and the wanton killings in the country, just as it tasked government at all levels and relevant agencies to wake up to their responsibilities.. Rising up from the meeting of its National Executive Committee (NEC), the Christian umbrella body expressed its disappointment, worries, shocks and grief over the loss of lives in the country in recent years due to some unavoidable factors and urged government at all levels and security agencies to revive their intelligence gathering.. On the missing General Idris Alkali, CAN wonders who is safe and secured again if an Army general could be attacked and be missing for weeks now. It charged the security operatives to wake up to their responsibilities and protect lives and property of all and sundry.. On the flood disasters in some parts of the country, the Association warns the populace against violating the environmental laws even as it ...
For tornado and flood survivors, the recovery process is far from over. In Health Plus, how one New Hartford man is trying to move on after losing his home in a minute. In minutes the EF5 tornado had come and gone a year ago in New Hartford. But the damage, both physical and emotional, will linger for decades. Pulled into the yard. I grabbed my dogs and headed for the basement.. Roger Palmersheim was inside his house with his family when the storm passed. You could just feel the pressure and I didnt think there was anyway we would make it.. After a month of being in shock, roger says he quit his job because he didnt care anymore. Social worker Ron Larson says, like Roger, some survivors need a change. Instead of being like on a cruise control just going through life day by day they want to change something. Theyve changed sometimes their careers. Theyve changed their marital status. Larson says tornado and flood victims still having a tough time emotionally could be experiencing post ...
WINCHESTER, IL (WGEM) - Illinois Governor JB Pritzker toured the flood zone in Scott County Tuesday.. The governor also held an operational briefing at the States Unified Area Command (SUAC) in Winchester, Illinois.. Pritzker was joined by Illinois Emergency Management Agency Acting Director Alicia Tate-Nadeau, Illinois Department of Transportation Secretary Omer Osmen, Illinois Department of Agriculture Director John Sullivan and Director of the Illinois National Guard Joint Staff Michael Glisson, and other state and local leaders.. Pritzker said that he had activated an additional 200 Illinois National Guard soldiers for State Active Duty to engage in the states active flood fight along the Illinois and Mississippi rivers.. He added that in all, more than 400 guardsmen are reinforcing the states efforts to fight raging floodwaters as more precipitation takes aim on river communities.. ...
Local adaptation to divergent environmental conditions can promote population genetic differentiation even in the absence of geographic barriers and hence, lead to speciation. Perturbations by catastrophic events, however, can distort such parapatric ecological speciation processes. Here, we asked whether an exceptionally strong flood led to homogenization of gene pools among locally adapted populations of the Atlantic molly (Poecilia mexicana, Poeciliidae) in the Cueva del Azufre system in southern Mexico, where two strong environmental selection factors (darkness within caves and/or presence of toxic H2S in sulfidic springs) drive the diversification of P. mexicana. Nine nuclear microsatellites as well as heritable female life history traits (both as a proxy for quantitative genetics and for trait divergence) were used as markers to compare genetic differentiation, genetic diversity, and especially population mixing (immigration and emigration) before and after the flood. Habitat type (i.e., non
Singer David Allan Coe famously said that the perfect country song had to contain Mama, or trains, or trucks, or prison, or gettin drunk.. Songwriter Steve Goodman obligingly added a verse containing all five to You Never Even Called Me By My Name, a humorous take on the misery that some listeners expect in a country tune that Coe turned into a hit. Its popularity demonstrates that country fans have a sense of humor about the disasters that fill the lyrics of some of the genres most famous songs.. But the misery of the home of country music, Nashville, Tennessee, in 2010 was all too real.. Areas that routinely experience flooding are typically prepared for the monetary costs and rebuilding efforts required by rising waters, allowing residents and businesses to purchase proper insurance coverage before a flood. Yet in May 2010, heavy rain, combined with a leaking levee, caught Nashvilles residents off guard. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, only 4,100 National Flood ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Synchrony between Early Jurassic extinction, oceanic anoxic event, and the Karoo-Ferrar flood basalt volcanism. AU - Pálfy, J.. AU - Smith, P. L.. PY - 2000. Y1 - 2000. N2 - A well-known second-order mass extinction took place during the Pliensbachian and Toarcian Stages of the Early Jurassic. First recognized as a minor Pliensbachian peak in the global extinction rate, it has alternatively been interpreted as a regional response to the early Toarcian oceanic anoxic event. Detailed studies established it as a global long-term event spanning five successive ammonoid zones. Here we present a revised time scale based on high-precision U-Pb ages resolved to the zone level, which suggests that elevated extinction rates were sustained for about 4 m.y. and peak extinction occurred at 183 Ma. Recent isotopic dating of flood basalts from the southern Gondwanan Karoo and Ferrar provinces documents a culmination in volcanic activity ca. 183 Ma. The onset of volcanism is recorded as an ...

In 1859 Antonio Snider proposed that rapid, horizontal divergence of crustal plates occurred during Noahs Flood. Modern plate tectonics theory is now conflated with assumptions of uniformity of rate and ideas of continental drift. Catastrophic plate tectonics theories, such as Snider proposed more than a century ago, appear capable of explaining a wide variety of data-including biblical and geologic data which the slow tectonics theories are incapable of explaining. We would like to propose a catastrophic plate tectonics theory as a framework for Earth history.. Geophysically, we begin with a pre-Flood earth differentiated into core, mantle, and crust, with the crust horizontally differentiated into sialic craton and mafic ocean floor. The Flood was initiated as slabs of oceanic floor broke loose and subducted along thousands of kilometers of pre-Flood continental margins. Deformation of the mantle by these slabs raised the temperature and lowered the viscosity of the mantle in the vicinity ...
New Castle County Executive Tom Gordon would like to remind county residents that they have until April 30, 2014 to appeal any revisions made by FEMA to the Flood Insurance Rate Map and Flood Insurance Study report. These reports take into account current flood conditions throughout New Castle County to ensure that residents insurance rates and coverage match up with the risk of flooding in their area.. I applaud FEMAs goal of ensuring that New Castle Countys flood insurance policies and rates are up to date based on current conditions throughout the County, but we want to be sure that the data being used is accurate, County Executive Gordon said. No one knows flood conditions better than the residents, so if you think the data is incorrect please submit any appeals for review before the Flood Zone Maps become finalized.. As has been publicized, residents have had 90 days to provide scientific or technical data that refutes the current proposals for the FIRM and FIS report. Appeals can be ...
Figure 5 labels this pre-Flood land Dinosaur Peninsula.7 We believe this narrow land mass extended roughly north to south from the Canadian border to New Mexico and possibly into isolated areas of Texas. It likely represented a pre-Flood swampy environment that possibly included some islands. Its also possible some of the larger dinosaurs were swept alive by floodwaters to sites off the peninsula, where they left tracks before eventually dying as the rising water encased their footprints in sediment.. The map in Figure 4 indicates that the location of the Dinosaur Peninsula coincides with the Dinosaur Freeway and even many of the dinosaur-fossil quarries across the West.8 We believe these areas were not fully inundated until strata representing the later Mesozoic units were deposited as the floodwaters peaked. The sedimentary record shows very few or only thin early Flood deposits across this peninsula.9 In other words, the earliest Flood deposits occurred off the pre-Flood shore and captured ...
Nicole B. Dory, a partner in Connell Foleys Environmental Law and Real Estate and Land Use Groups, authored the article Flood Ordinances and the New Jersey Supreme Courts Reaffirmation of Vested Final Approval in Shipyard Associates, LP v the City of Hoboken, which was published in the January/February 2021 issue of The New Jersey Planner Newsletter published by The New Jersey Planning Officials. The article provides an in-depth examination into the issues that arose in the case Shipyard Associates, LP v. City of Hoboken, 242 N.J. 23 (2020). As Nicole writes, this decision is notable because it affirms the statutory protections for approved development that are afforded by the Municipal Land Use Law (MLUL). The decision extends these protections to prevent flood ordinances from being retroactively changed to undo final land use approvals.. See Related Materials to read the full article..

Once the most lucrative European colony in the Caribbean, Haiti has longbeen one of the most divided and impoverished countries in the world. In thelate 1980s a remarkable popular mobilization known as Lavalas, or the flood,sought to liberate the island from decades of US-backed dictatorial rule. Afterwinning a landslide election victory, in 1991 the Lavalas government led byPresident Jean-Bertrand Aristide was overthrown by a bloody military coup. Dammingthe Flood analyzes how and why Aristides enemies in Haiti, the US andFrance made sure that his second government, elected with another overwhelmingmajority in 2000, was toppled by a further coup in 2004.The elaborate international campaign to contain, discredit and thenoverthrow Lavalas at the start of the twenty-first century was perhaps the mostsuccessful act of imperial sabotage since the end of the Cold War. Itsexecution and its impact have much to teach anyone interested in thedevelopment of todays political struggles in Latin America and the

Potentially disastrous. Grayson sits on a liquefaction zone and will be taken offline at the best or destroyed at the worse in an major earthquake. GWP points out that Grayson was fine after the Sylmar earthquake but Sylmar was a 6.6 magnitude earthquake. Experts say we need to be prepared for an 8.2 magnitude on the San Andreas fault. An 8.2 quake would be 250 times stronger than Sylmar. It is highly likely that ground movement would be enough to sever gas pipes, leading at worst to gas leaks, explosions, and fires, and at best to shutting down the source of power Glendale needs in just such a situation. This type of risk is best mitigated with a distributed solution based on a combination of solar, battery storage and micro-grid infrastructure and not one built around a single point of failure.. In addition Grayson sits in the path of any flood event that requires Hansen or Sepulveda Dams to spill water, like the recent flood event in Houston. As climate change makes the weather patterns less ...

water transport - though at the expense of permanently flooding many existing towns (including numerous ancient cultural relics) and causing large-scale changes in the local ecology.. Opponents of the dam point out that there are three different kinds of floods on the Yangtze River: floods which originate in the upper reaches, floods which originate in the lower reaches, and floods along the entire length of the river. They argue that the Three Gorges dam will actually make flooding in the upper reaches of the river worse and have little or no impact on floods which originate in the lower reaches. Twelve hundred years of low water marks on the river were recorded in the inscriptions and the carvings of carp at ...

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) said it received more than 50 loan applications from McLean County residents and business owners who suffered flood damage in storms in late June. So far, less than a dozen have been approved. The SBA has granted $ 427,200 in low-interest long-term loans to 11 homeowners in the county through August 9. This represents almost $ 39,000 per loan. The SBA received 47 mortgage applications. The SBA has yet to approve commercial loans. She received four applications for business loans. Janel Finley, public affairs specialist in the SBAs Office of Disaster Assistance, said some of the loan applications were still under review, but it was not known how many. The deadline to request compensation for physical damage is September 24. Homeowners and business owners have until April 26, 2022 to apply for loans to cover economic losses. SBA staff organized a disaster outreach lending center from July 28 through August. 7 at the McBarnes Building in downtown ...

Floodplain inundation is one of the major factors that has shaped the geography, flora and fauna of Californias Central Valley. As in most developed regions of the western United States, the majority of the historical floodplain has been lost to dam and levee construction. However, California was fortunate in that early flood engineers retained relatively large areas of floodplain as part of the flood management system. The largest contiguous floodplain area of the lower Sacramento River (the primary tributary of the San Francisco Estuary) is the Yolo Bypass, a 24,000 ha basin. The Bypass is a central feature of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project, which conveys floodwaters from the major valley rivers including the Sacramento, American, and Feather Rivers, and their tributary watersheds. Seasonal inundation of the Yolo Bypass is one of the most dramatic seasonal events in Californias Sacramento Valley. The Yolo Bypass typically floods in about 60 percent of years, when high winter and ...
Cities are facing increasing risks caused by extreme climate events, making housing, infrastructure, traffic, health, ecosystems and cultural and historical heritage vulnerable. Continuous climate change is expected to further increase this risk, and thus the need for adequate and timely response of decision makers at all administrative levels. Accordingly, planning adaptation measures has become a high priority for local government authorities and property owners in cities. However, the cost-effective planning of adaptation strategies is very complicated. The integrated assessment of climate events, associated flooding, damage costs and adaptation measures requires multidisciplinary work and close interaction between professionals and decision-makers. Damage cost assessments and adaptation planning also require context-specific data and modelling, which, all together, can be very demanding in the development of solid local adaptation plans for decision-making.. ...
