Hazus-MH 2.0 Released Tuesday, May 31, 2011
We are pleased to announce that Hazus-MH 2.0 is now available! The 2.0 release includes many improvements to the usability and functionality of the software including, but not limited to:
- A new coastal storm surge modeling capability integrating two industry standard models (SLOSH and SWAN), which now allows Hazus to predict the physical and economic impacts of hurricane scenarios on coastal flood regions. In addition to estimating the separate impacts of coastal flooding and high winds, the coastal surge scenario methodology also estimates the combined economic losses to the general building stock in a manner that avoids double counting of flood and wind losses.
- With Hazus-MH 2.0, the CDMS tool has been integrated with Hazus. CDMS will no longer be handled as a distinct product requiring users to obtain and install it separately. It will automatically be added when installing Hazus, thus making it easier for users to take advantage of the tool’s data management capabilities.
- Hazus-MH 2.0 is now compatible with ArcGIS 10.0 Service Pack 1.
