CISA RISA releases 4-Pager on South Carolina Floods of October 2015

Members of the Carolinas Integrated Sciences & Assessments (CISA), a NOAA RISA team,  compiled an integrated assessment of the conditions which contributed to the October 2015 extreme rainfall and flooding events in South Carolina.

This 4-pager provides an overview of the climatological and hydrological conditions which contributed to flooding and loss of property and life in South Carolina in October 2015. The last page includes considerations for communities as they seek to recover and rebuild more resiliently.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather.

In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
