5.2.1.      Impacts

Worldwide databases for natural disasters in general like EM-DAT (2012) or NatCatService (2012) or more specific for floods, e.g. Dartmouth Flood Observatory (2012) are nowadays the main data sources available for European wide studies. Details on damages have been compiled in the EM-DAT database, which contains floods fulfilling at least one of the following criteria:

•           ten or more people reported killed;

•           one hundred or more people reported affected;

•           declaration of a state of emergency;

•           call for international assistance.
