Flooding remains one of the leading weather-related causes of death in the U.S. according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate (DHS S&T) established the Flood Apex Program to reduce fatalities from flooding events; reduce property losses from future flood events; support community flood resiliency; and provide flood predictive analytics tools for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other stakeholders.
