HEC-FIA

Hydrologic Engineering Center - Flood Impact Analysis

The Hydrologic Engineering Center's Flood Impact Analysis (HEC-FIA) is a tool for quantifying the consequences of flood events. It utilizes the output of gridded flood data or stage hydrographs to calculate structure and content damages, agricultural losses, and estimate potential life loss.
