It is important for decision-makers in emergency response situations to determine the scope, scale, timing, path and resettlement area of an evacuation decision when there is an imminent threat of flooding. In this paper, a method called the "Evacuation Diagram" is described to support risk-based evacuation planning and decision-making. In...

Sinds het Deltaprogramma zijn risicobenadering en rampenbeheersing definitief ingebed in het waterveiligheidsbeleid. Echter, in een koppeling tussen deze twee is nog veel winst te behalen, betoogt Bas Kolen; vooral voor de systematiek van opschalen, het moment om maatregelen te nemen en manieren om maatregelen beter te kunnen uitleggen. De...

An analysis was made of the loss of life caused by Hurricane Harvey. Information was collected for 70 fatalities that occurred due to the event and were recovered within the first 2 weeks after landfall. Most fatalities occurred due to drowning (81 %), particularly in and around vehicles. Males (70 %) and people over 50 years old (56 %) were...

On August 25, 2017, Hurricane Harvey made landfall near Rockport, Texas as a Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of approximately 200 km/hour. Harvey caused severe damages in coastal Texas due to extreme winds and storm surge, but will go down in history for record-setting rainfall totals and flood-related damages. Across large...

To help decision makers in delta areas to select appropriate adaptation and mitigation strategies it is necessary to have a clear picture of the main drivers of risk and how risk evolves under changing conditions. Acknowledging these problems, the Delta Alliance and the TU Delft took the initiative to develop a new index that helps cities to...

Design-criteria for flood-defences have a legal character in the Netherlands. Formerly, these flood protection standards were based on design-waterlevels, where a flood defence was implicitly supposed not to fail below this waterlevel. Since knowledge regarding dike-failure improved, a new risk approach has been developed based on a social cost...

An integrated flood risk management (IFRM) strategy consist of a comprehensive set of measures to reduce the risk: protective measures (to reduce the probability of a flood), and land use planning and disaster management (to reduce the consequences of a flood. In the Netherlands this is called a ‘multiple layer safety approach’, other countries...

The central issue for authorities (as well as the public) is how and when to respond to forecasted extreme water levels on rivers, lakes and along the coast and large-scale flooding is an actual risk. The decision-making process is influenced by contradicting information, overloads and gaps in information, rumours, uncertainties in forecasts,...

This paper presents an overview and review of methods developed for loss of life estimation in flood risk assessment. These methods range from empirical to simulation based approaches that are used to support flood risk analyses and emergency management. Similarities and differences between the modelling approaches, input and output types and...

Both in the USA and in the Netherlands, extensive studies on approaches for identifying flood risks (the combination of levee failure probabilities and consequences) are ongoing. A related topic concerns evacuation and emergency management (EEM). The magnitude of life loss is directly influenced by the effectiveness of EEM. Different models can...

In this research vertical evacuation is defined as the displacement of people to dry floors in buildings or public shelters that are located inside the threatened or flooded area. Vertical evacuation strategies can be implemented in combination with, or as an alternative to, preventive evacuate in case preventive evacuation is not entirely...

In the Netherlands, USA and other countries methods for the analysis of loss of life and evacuation associated with flooding are used in flood risk management. This paper compares the methods from the US and Netherlands in this field and considers both methodological principles as well as the outcomes for various case studies. Similarities and...

This paper presents an assessment of the multi-layered safety system in Tohoku, Japan based on the tsunami disaster of March 2011. The performed analysis has been based on data provided by local researchers and field observations. First an overview of the tsunami behaviour along the affected coastline of Tohoku is presented, which shows clearly...

We claim that, in The Netherlands, emergency management for flooding should be seen as an ‘add on’ to existing emergency planning. Therefore, some specific preparation is required to minimize loss of life and maximize the use of available information, resources and infrastructure. This booklet discusses this preparation based on the experiences...

Le 28 février 2010, vers 2 heures du matin, la tempête Xynthia atteint la côte occidentale de la France. A plusieurs endroits, les digues, dunes et d’autres ouvrages cédèrent, donnant lieu à des inondations du littoral. Plus de 50.000 hectares de terres furent inondées. Au total, la France compta 47 morts suite à la tempête, la plupart d’entre...

On the 28th of February 2010 at 2 a.m. the storm Xynthia hit the French Atlantic coast. The storm surge combined with the high tide and large waves caused flood defences to fail along the coastline from the Gironde (Bordeaux) to the Loire Estuary. A significant amount of land, (>50 000 ha) was consequently flooded and 47 people died as a result...
