Flood is one of the most costly natural hazards and flood potential is rising around the world. Yet most flood loss is both predictable and preventable.
FM Global’s interactive Global Flood Map presents business executives with a powerful strategic planning tool, and risk managers with a way to address natural hazard exposure worldwide. A version of the map is available for use by businesses and the public at no cost. The map provides insight into locating facilities and helps identify which areas to prioritize for flood improvement.
Dr. Louis Gritzo, vice president and manager of research at FM Global explains, "Now is the time for businesses to examine their buildings' ability to withstand flooding, as well as evaluate their processes to manage surface water, roof drainage and water supplies. Similarly, companies should be mindful as to where they build new plants, factories and office structures, closely evaluating the potential impact of extreme precipitation and flooding."
