Compound flooding in eastern North Carolina: Understanding stakeholder perceptions and needs
Scott Curtis, Jamie Kruse, Anuradha Mukherji, Jennifer Helgeson, Kelley DePolt, Philip Van Wagoner, Ausmita Ghosh
While our scientific understanding of compound flood risk has made great strides in recent years, there is a lack of studies related to stakeholder awareness of the non-linear combination of pluvial, fluvial, and tidal flooding, which often occur in coastal storm environments. Here we present the concept of our NOAA-funded project "Preparing for, Responding to, and Mitigating Coastal Compound Water Hazards for Resilient Rural Communities" and describe some preliminary survey and focus group data collected from planners, emergency managers, and elected officials from across eastern North Carolina.
