Santa Clara and Virgin Rivers Flood: City of St. George, Utah   [open pdf - 907KB]

This map provided by HAZUS-MH (Hazards U.S. - Multi Hazard), illustrates an estimated flood depth grid developed from discharge values provided by the National Weather Service. It also describes how HAZUS-MH can be used in pre-disaster preparation: Estimation of economic losses for buildings as a result of flooding in the City of St. George. It can also be used in post-disaster situations: estimation of potential economic losses for buildings from the effects of flooding, identification of areas within the county that are expected to sustain building damage, identification of streets and bridges that have been flooded, and identification and prioritization of areas to be surveyed by damage assessment teams.
