CoreLogic® Issues Maps Showing Risk of Storm Surge Flooding from Hurricane Irene in 12 Major Metro Areas See Map Links Below


SANTA ANA, Calif., August 26, 2011 – CoreLogic (NYSE: CLGX), a leading provider of information, analytics and business services, has released data showing the estimated number of residential and commercial properties that could potentially be impacted by Hurricane Irene storm surge flooding depending on where the storm makes landfall. Among the 12 coastal major metro areas included in the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) cone of concern and analyzed by CoreLogic, an estimated 1,874,794 properties are at potential risk of storm surge flooding. Long Island, NY faces the highest risk with an estimated 387,813 properties located in the projected path of Irene. Of the properties at risk in Long Island, roughly 66 percent are located outside a hazard flood zone as designated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Of the total properties at risk in all 12 cities, almost half, or 48 percent, are not in a designated FEMA flood zone.The CoreLogic analysis assumes a scenario for a Category 3 hurricane. See chart below.

Hurricane-driven storm-surge flooding can cause significant property damage when high winds and low pressure causes water to amass inside the storm releasing a powerful rush over land when the hurricane moves on shore.In some cases, properties located outside of designated FEMAhazard flood zones remain exposed to potential storm-surge damage.

Broadcast quality Google Earth (KML) files and publishable maps depicting potential storm surge risk for targeted areas can be accessed at the links below:
