New version of Hazus is released
FEMA’s nationally applicable, standardized methodology that contains models for estimating potential losses from earthquakes, floods, hurricane winds, and tsunamis has been upgraded to version 4.2. Hazus 4.2 is now compatible with ArcGIS 10.5.1. The new software can be downloaded at no charge from the
Map Service Center (MSC) download page
. Additional enhancements and changes to the Hazus software include: major processing time reductions for hydrology and hydraulics within level 1 flood; additional supported formats for level 2 flood depth grid import; high resolution ShakeMaps now compatible, with faster import times; restoration of the Fire Following Earthquake (FFE) module; and improvements to the Comprehensive Data Management System (CDMS) for easier import of user data. Also included are numerous upgrades making Hazus easier to use for U.S. territories and custom international applications, and the inclusion of additional historical data. These upgrades will allow Hazus users to evaluate risk and potential losses from multiple hazards faster than ever.
