    • Abstract:
      Road fl ooding is a serious operational hazard for low-lying areas of south Louisiana. This is

      especially true for emergency evacuation routes, which must be accessible for coastal residents

      evacuating ahead of an approaching hurricane or tropical storm.

      Numerous factors contribute to the hazards of road fl ooding, which include vulnerability and risk

      relative to vehicle type, road elevations, tidal ranges, wave action, and storm surge. In order to

      mitigate hazards associated with fl ooded evacuation routes, the Center for GeoInformatics (C4G)

      at Louisiana State University (LSU) proposes to develop a decision support tool for determining

      the hazard characteristics of specifi c road segments vulnerable to hurricane fl ooding.
