Flood Disasters in Canada

Coordinate system: 9802


This database contains summary information on 168 Canadian flood disasters that occurred between 1900 and June 1997. The database is not, by any means, a complete list of flood events in Canada since the vast majority of the floods did not cause disasters. All mentions of damage costs have not been corrected for inflation. The database also is biased towards the more densely populated areas of Canada where floods are more likely to impact humans.
