Title: Historical flash floods in the South West: Reconstructing the 1968 event

Summary of the presentation

This presentation at Floodex UK was focused on the aftermath of the 1968 flood within the local community, scrutinizing the financial impacts and human casualties. The discussion covered the methods of reconstruction, adopting a tailored approach that incorporates numerical models like HEC-RAS and HEC-HMS for detailed hydraulic and hydrological simulations. The process also involved harnessing narratives and eyewitness accounts from the local populace to inform and enhance engineering practices. Moreover, the conversation extended to the strategies for future risk assessment to guide the forthcoming stages of the project.
