Louisiana State University: Using the Power of HAZUS to Study a Flood-prone State
In the wake of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, much HAZUS work was being done in the CADGIS lab, on the campus of Louisiana State University. In particular, a graduate student named Michelle Barnett (who now works at the Center for Energy Studies at LSU) produced many significant studies that took advantage of HAZUS methodology to create flooding scenarios. Her subject: the flood-prone parishes located all along the Louisiana Gulf Coast. Three of the studies of the Louisiana Gulf Coast conducted by Michelle Barnett focused on the lower Amite River Valley, the Calcasieu River Basin, and St. Mary Parish, respectively.
