HAZUS: The Flood Information Tool (FIT)
The Flood Information Tool (FIT), released in 2002, was designed to process and convert locally available flood information to data that can be used by the HAZUS Flood Module. The FIT is a system of instructions, tutorials, and GIS analysis scripts. When given user-supplied inputs (e.g., ground elevations, flood elevations, and floodplain boundary information), the FIT will calculate flood depth and elevation for riverine and coastal flood hazards. The FIT is intended to help users perform Level 2 or Level 3 flood hazard analyses.

HAZUS-MH, is a nationally applicable standardized methodology and software
program that contains models for estimating potential losses from earthquakes,
floods, and hurricane winds. HAZUS-MH was developed by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA) under contract with the National Institute of Building
Sciences (NIBS). NIBS maintains committees of wind, flood, earthquake and
software experts to provide technical oversight and guidance to HAZUS-MH
development. Loss estimates produced by HAZUS-MH are based on current
scientific and engineering knowledge of the effects of hurricane winds, floods,
and earthquakes. Estimating losses is essential to decision-making at all
levels of government, providing a basis for developing mitigation plans and
policies, emergency preparedness, and response and recovery planning.
