ASFPM Talking Points


31st July 2020

Last month FMA talked about the First Street Foundation Flood Risk Model recently released in the USA. Since then, our US colleagues at the ASFPM have released some talking points about the First Street model.
 
ASFPM have kindly agreed to allow us to distribute these talking points for us all to see. The First Street model seems to provide flood mapping across the whole nation, albeit on a fairly coarse grid.
 
The talking points from ASFPM provide an excellent perspective on the modelling whilst also supporting the need for funding of appropriate flood mapping of the whole USA.
 
 
Our many thanks go to Larry Larson and the ASFPM for sharing these comments with us.
