A Short Cut Methodology for Flood-Technological Risk Assessment

This paper discusses some methodological issues characterizing the development of a short-cut methodology for Na-Tech risk assessment, with particular reference to the integration between flood – and technological – related hazards. Actually, flood events
can involve industrial areas increasing the level of risk for people, especially in densely populated areas where major hazard factories and flooding areas overlap. In spite of its potential high relevance, risk from industrial accidents triggered by floods has so far received little attention.
