Wind Water Line (WWL) Reports

Wind Water Line (WWL) Maps were developed for Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama to document the extent of flooding caused by storm surge that occurred as a result of Hurricane Katrina. WWL Maps provide an approximate boundary between areas that suffer from both wind and flood damage versus areas further inland where wind is the primary cause of damage.
