Guidance for Flood Risk Analysis and Mapping: Post-Flood Hazard Verification/ Recovery Tools [open pdf - 351KB]
From the Introduction: "It is critical to establish a coordinated effort to collect and disseminate accurate flood data and risk information to aid response and recovery efforts after a flood disaster occurs. Furthermore, it is important to collect and share these data as quickly as possible following the event's occurrence to aid in these efforts. These data may assist in response and recovery activities that include planning (mitigation, capital improvement, operations), investigation of the event and infrastructure, and the completion of projects to mitigate residential and commercial structures and other infrastructure from future flood risk. [...] The purpose of this document is to provide the Mapping Partner with guidance and best practices pertaining to post-flood hazard verification and recovery tools. Outreach and interagency coordination are discussed as well as high-water mark data collection, wind/water line investigations, and assessment of post-disaster flood hazard data needs. This document also outlines recovery tools such as Advisory Base Flood Elevations (ABFEs) and non-regulatory mapping products."
