I had someone ask me recently if there were any available source, maps, reports indicating the dates of flood incidents in New Orleans from May to October (2015 – 2018). Does anyone know where to look for historic flooding maps and/or data?


@sagarpreet, this might be interesting to add to if folks have some good data sources!

For Surge data, you can SURGEDAT for the Whole Gulf of Mexico.

Ezra Boyd would have known the answer to this in detail, I do miss him.

For New Orleans, i think the sustainable cities data has the 10 yr rain flood...

of course, FEMA has the HAZUS-MH

USGS has their estimation, based on photography (of course)

HUD map is based on NOAA data...
