This dataset contains event history for floods in Utah based on the NOAA weather database. It has been dis-aggregated to census place for alignment with other compatible databases in order to analyze local history and experience. The readme file elaborates on the methods of disaggregation. It includes data from 1997-2014, but more reliable data is separated for 2010-2014 after a change in NWS procedure and event recognition.
