    NFIP IS SCHEDULED FOR CONGRESSIONAL REAUTHORIZATION IN 2017

    Key findings from California’s Flood Future include:

    • CALIFORNIA IS AT CATASTROPHIC RISK FOR DEVASTATING FLOODS.California’s diverse geography contributes to the state’s significant flood risk. In many regions, peak flows — the largest volume of water flowing per second through a water system — occur in a very short time frame, which spells disaster.
    • Flooding is a statewide problem. Every California county has experienced a federally declared flood disaster in the past 20 years. Counties with relatively low risk for a major flood event would be impacted by the results of a catastrophic flood elsewhere in the state, when employment centers, transportation facilities, utilities and the economy are affected.
    • THE IMPACTS OF A MAJOR FLOOD WOULD BE DEVASTATING TO CALIFORNIA AND TO THE NATION.In addition to tragic loss of life, flooding in California can have a serious impact on its economy and environmental resources. A major flood in California, which has one of the world’s largest economies, will have an unprecedented impact on the national economy as well. With many more people and structures per square mile in California’s urban areas, the state would likely see much higher recovery costs from a major flood than the $110 billion that has been spent on recovery from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita or the $60 billion that has been appropriated for recovery from Superstorm Sandy.

    ACROSS THE US AND WORLDWIDE, FLOODING IS THE DEADLIEST AND MOST COSTLY NATURAL DISASTER.

    The US National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) is an imperfect framework for reducing flood losses, but currently the best we’ve got

    NFIP IS SCHEDULED FOR CONGRESSIONAL REAUTHORIZATION IN 2017, and this debate promises to be lively. 

    The Natural Hazards Research and Mitigation Group at UC Davis has been analyzing NFIP DATABASES, EXAMINING PATTERNS OVER THE HISTORY OF THE PROGRAM AND FOCUSING ON FLOOD LOSSES AND FLOOD INSURANCE, PARTICULARLY IN CALIFORNIA.

    Over the history of NFIP, California is one of a few states that has – through dry years and wet – received only a small fraction of payments from NFIP compared to the premiums it has paid in.  Since 1994, NFIP damage payouts in California have totaled just 14% of premiums collected (compared to 560% for the biggest recipient state, Mississippi).  For California, this imbalance exceeds $3 billion (2015 dollars) over 21 years, funds that could have been invested in risk-reduction, floodplain management, and reduced premiums.

    California has unparalleled expertise and a culture of progressive solutions for managing its flood risk; the state also has unique needs and intense pressures looking forward.

    WITH THE US NFIP FACING AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE – >$20 BILLION IN DEBT,

    AND WITH A CHALLENGING CONGRESSIONAL REAUTHORIZATION DISCUSSION LOOMING IN 2017 –we recommend a careful look at California’s place in the NFIP.

    In particular, CALIFORNIA SHOULD NOW EXPLORE A STATE FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM, WITH SAVINGS INVESTED IN LONG-TERM RISK REDUCTION.  Properly implemented, a state-based insurance program and proactive flood mitigation strategies could synergistically benefit the environment, agriculture, recreation, and water resources. 

    THIS APPROACH HAS MAJOR CHALLENGES, WITH IMPLICATIONS BOTH FOR CALIFORNIA AND NATIONWIDE THAT SHOULD BE EXPLORED.

    With one of the biggest storms in years set to hit Northern California this weekend, we headed to The Chronicle’s archive to find photos and stories from the infamous New Year’s storm of 1997 that walloped the region 20 years ago.

    The flooding’s toll came to eight dead, $1.8 billion in economic losses, 23,000 homes destroyed, and 2,000 businesses damaged or decimated. FORTY-EIGHT COUNTIES WERE DECLARED DISASTER AREAS, INCLUDING ALL 46 IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.

    THE GREAT FLOOD IN CALIFORNIA.; Great Destruction of Property Damage $10,000,000.

    The destruction of property was terrible. The water came so rapidly that most people had not more than an hour’s warning of the danger.

    Men, women, and children had stayed in houses thinking there was no danger; and when the flood rose they could not get away. Some of these houses were carried off, and boats were sent after them to rescue the human freight.

    And now, on the morning of the 9th of November,
