6 6 Issue The Hazus Canada flood module is experiencing an issue when updating a study region with new inventory data from CDMS. The only solution at this time is to ensure that all of the essential facility and transportation facility data is included in the provincial database BEFORE creating a study region. The NRCan National-Scale Geohazard Risk Assessment Project Team are working on the issue and will provide an update if and when a solution is found. The Hazus helpdesk is no longer helping Canadian users, so use this group to share issues.
