Abstract The objective of this project is to investigate the application of Dutch models for Loss of life and evacuation analysis to US case studies. Within this second phase we have made analyses of life loss for the Natomas Basin (CA) as part of the comparison effort. We have also had a workshop with USACE experts from Nov 26-29 (2012) in Davis (CA) to discuss the comparison effort and the activities in the case studies for New Orleans and the Herbert Hoover Dike that will be undertaken in the next steps.
