Comparative Analysis of Flood Insurance Claims in the Delaware River Basin -- September 2004, April 2005, and June 2006 Floods

This is a comparative analysis of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) closed claims in the Delaware River Basin for the September 2004 (Remnants of Tropical Storm Ivan), April 2005, and June 2006 flood events.  The analysis, prepared by DRBC staff in April 2007, includes GIS maps that graphically show the number of closed NFIP claims per municipality, a detailed listing of total claims and payouts per municipality, and a summary table showing the municipalities and counties with the largest numbers of NFIP claims per flood event.   Please note that this analysis does not represent uninsured flood damage.  The source of the information is the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and is subject to change.

Analysis of Repetitive and Severe Repetitive Loss Properties in the Delaware River Basin

This is an analysis of FEMA-designated repetitive and severe repetitive loss properties in the Delaware River Basin.  The analysis, prepared by DRBC staff in April 2007, includes GIS maps that graphically show the number and dollar amount of repetitive loss properties and severe repetitive loss properties per municipality, as well as a detailed listing of the loss properties and a summary table showing the most affected municipalities and counties according to number and dollar amount of designated loss properties. Please note that this analysis does not represent uninsured flood damage.  

FEMA is the source of the information, which is subject to change. The analysis considered NFIP closed claims from January 1, 1978 through February 28, 2007. A property is considered a repetitive loss property by FEMA when there are two or more losses reported which were paid more than $1,000 for each loss; the two losses must be within 10 years of each other and be at least 10 days apart. A property is considered a severe repetitive loss property by FEMA either when there are at least four losses each exceeding $5,000 or when there are two or more losses where the building payments exceed the property value. The free Adobe reader is required to view the following documents.
