Researchers at SCIPP and three NWS River Forecast Centers (RFC) piloted an online survey that was sent to various state floodplain managers, emergency managers, and broadcast meteorologists in the SCIPP region. This report is based on responses from 70 people who provided information about their oversight on recent flood events.
This report contains various details of major disaster declarations dating back to 1953 as archived by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. With this, SCIPP undertook a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) study to assess weather-related disaster declarations in an effort to understand where specific hazards have occurred most frequently and when.
This report is comprised of surveys that were taken in order to better understand the climate information needs of Gulf Coast region decision makers. SCIPP conducted interviews that were used to assess needs between coastal and inland decision makers, as well as to identify issues facing states and the region as a whole.
