The Hazus Team Presents Key Updates at National Earthquake Conference in San Diego, March 2020
The Hazus Team demonstrated the importance of recent nationwide infrastructure data updates by performing a comparative analysis of the Rose Canyon San Diego Earthquake Scenario. The results were unveiled during this year's National Earthquake Conference. Analysis results showed a 10% increase in losses driven by the newer infrastructure data, as well as a complete shift in bridge performance. This highlights the importance of using accurate risk information to identify the best mitigation opportunities.
The Hazus Program Partners with Homeland Infrastructure Foundation Level Data for Latest Nationwide Facilities
Hazus program partners and the Homeland Infrastructure Foundation-Level Data (HIFLD) program updated nationwide point and segment locations for infrastructure layers.
