DESCRIPTION

The Storm Impact Database is a repository of (meta) information of the impact of historical storms (surges, winds, flash floods) in the case study areas. The data base includes not only physical but also socio-economic, cultural and environmental information. The database will strengthen the efforts of local communities and national governments to apply the Floods Directive raising historical awareness of what has occurred, and lead to a better understanding of the stakes and vulnerabilities of the case study sites in a long-term perspective. Within the project, the database is a source of validation data to test the effectiveness of DRR scenarios.

This Storm Impact Database is published in the form of an open-access webpage [T1] and presentation [P1].
