    • 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.
