McDonough County Natural Hazard Events Questionnaire
Supplemental information about the natural hazard events that have taken place in the participating jurisdictions and County is needed for the risk assessment portion of the Plan. If you could take a moment and think about past natural hazard occurrences and provide any available information in the form below, it would be greatly appreciated.
Natural hazard events include thunderstorms with damaging winds (straight-line winds), hail, lightning strikes, heavy rain, severe winter storms (snow and/or ice), extreme cold, floods, tornadoes, drought, excessive heat, landslides, sinkholes, mine subsidence, earthquakes, levee failures and dam failures.
Any information on lightning strikes, landslides, mine subsidence, sinkholes and dam/levee failures are especially needed. There are no comprehensive, publicly-accessible databases detailing occurrences of these events. In addition, information on severe winter storms, floods and/or excessive heat prior to 1993 is needed. NOAA’s Storm Events Database does not contain records older than the mid-1990s for these types of events.
Please complete one survey for each natural hazard event. Do not combine multiple events on one survey. To provide additional hazard event information complete the survey again. The survey may be completed as many times as needed.
An asterisk (*) desonates a question that is required for form completion.
