United States Flood Database (USFD) v1.0


The USFD encompasses seven individual databases, which are the NOAA National Weather Service (NWS) storm reports, Emergency Events Database (EM-DAT), Dartmouth Flood Observatory database (DFO), the University of Connecticut Flood Events Database (FEDB), cyber-infrastructure flood database (CyberFlood), meteorological Phenomena identification near the ground data (mPing), and Global Flood Monitoring (GFM). The idea is to compile and produce a complete and analysis-ready database for public use to study floods and risk management.
