Since the late 1990s, HAZUS has been used to support analysis of shelter requirements, displaced households, and residential losses from earthquakes, floods and hurricanes. This analysis has important potential applications for FEMA’s Individuals and Households Program. Potential applications include: Analysis of exposure of population to hazard impacts (hurricane winds, storm surge, ground shaking); Estimates of the number of Individual Assistance Preliminary Damage Assessment Teams required for a disaster; Estimates of expected residential damage; Estimates of short-term shelter requirements; and Estimates of the number of displaced households. This handout explains preliminary damage assessment states and provides example of HAZUS maps that were generated to support this effort.
