 Storms & Floods, Fall 2005

"We have started this new journal to reach over 4,500 professionals, elected officials, and others interested in protecting people, property and natural functions from flood damage caused by nature and human development.

Storms & Floods is intended to reach a wide audience of both technical and lay people. This issue contains articles for code officials, planners, engineers, and attorneys, but they are all written so everyone can understand them."
