Category), storm surge, rain accumulation (depth and rate), duration, and size (land-covered area) (Holland 2012). Earthquake The earthquake threat is applicable to those sites located in seismically active areas. Frequency estimates associated with different levels of seismic event (available from different government sources) should be consulted for each site. Examples of information to consider during a seismic analysis include the magnitude of the seismic event and distance from the epicenter of the quake (Earthquake Parameters 2012, NOAA 2012).
Historical data can be used to determine the likelihood of occurrence. Analyses should estimate the likelihoods of tornadoes and extreme winds and the associated wind speeds and duration. Flood External flooding can be caused by weather-induced or weather-related events or many other events. Information that can be used to identify and analyze the potential for external flooding at a site includes melting snow, severe thunderstorms, sources of water, and tropical cyclones. For internal flooding, the sources of water must be identified, including the frequency of occurrence for each source (NOAA—Flooding, All Hazard Monitor 2012).
