Relationship between severity of a hazard, its probability and degree of risk
What would they be for earthquake?
Total cost of event / losses / defences
Extent to which losses can be minimised
A hazard model is crucial because it is used to predict the probabilities of tsunamis of different heights and hence the expected loss
What are the methods used to predict hurricanes? (time, magnitude and location)
How is this communicated to the public?
What factors will affect predictions of the potential impacts?
What are the limitations to these methods?
