Abstract

This project aimed to provide the London Borough of Hounslow with an easily replicable method for estimating flood costs in order to aid in emergency planning. Information gathered from census data and case studies on past flooding was used to establish damage estimation factors that would provide a useful model of flood consequences. The team produced a modelling program to estimate the effects of a flood in terms of property damage, health concerns, school closings, utility disruption, temporary accommodation, and total monetary cost.
