Coastal Hazard Vulnerability Assessment
Copyright: SCDHEC - MyCoast

In the spring of 2018, DHEC-OCRM performed a hazard vulnerability assessment within the South Carolina Critical Area. The critical area is defined as coastal waters, tidelands, beaches and beach/dune system. The assessment was performed using the Hazard Vulnerability Assessment (HVA) tool. The HVA tool is an open-source geospatial tool that evaluates coastal hazard vulnerability from four components:

1) Storm Surge    2) Shoreline Change    3) Flooding    4) Social & Economic Vulnerability

This application displays the results of the HVA analysis, and provides access to downloadable DHEC-OCRM GIS data, links to external data sources, & links to the open-source HVA tool and supporting products.
