HANZE-Event list B

HANZE-Events list B contains locations and dates of 237 floods that have occurred in 42 European countries between 1950 and 2020. It supplements list A (link do tabeli z listą A) by adding floods for which impact data is not available, but existing information strongly indicate that it would have qualified for list A if such data were accessible. Similarly, it was created through extensive compilation, cross-checking and homogenization of documentary data sources. Using a standardized classification of subnational units based on the NUTS system, all events can easily be connected with socioeconomic exposure data in HANZE (view) or other NUTS-based statistical data.
