Title:  The Tampa Bay Storm Surge Impact Forecasting Tool (SSIFT)

Date: Wed, June 12, 2024 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM EST

Description: The Tampa Bay Storm Surge Impact Forecasting Tool (SSIFT) is an advanced geoprocessing application designed specifically for the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay regions. This tool harnesses real-time data to predict storm surge impacts and inland inundation depths during coastal flooding events. By integrating the STOFS-3D-Atlantic model for water levels with the National Water Model outputs, it forecasts up to 48 hours ahead, considering both coastal and inland hydrology as well as extreme precipitation effects. High-resolution Digital Elevation Models, along with regional infrastructure data, enable detailed spatial analysis of potential impacts. The tool also employs Hazus flood damage libraries to estimate regional economic impacts, such as building and content losses, debris generation, and recovery times.

Presenter: Matt Goolsby- Clearview Land Design, P.L.
