Some of the most exposed cities are not all developed nations. Many are less developed and at even greater risk because of failing infrastructure. That being said the risk for monetary loss leans more heavily towards developed countries, as wealthier low lying areas and cities have more to lose.
The top ten cities are Miami, New Orleans, Greater New York, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Nagoya, Osaka-Kobe, Tampa-St Petersburg and Virginia Beach.
U.S. Flood Control and Tiger Dams™ has a plan and a system in place to mitigation large areas of shoreline and river exposure.
Tiger Dams™ are water filled bladder technology, when deployed properly, this system may be able to divert up to
100% of floodwaters. Our System can be assembled within minutes using floodwaters or any water source.
Tiger Dams™ fill in as little as 90 seconds, with minimal man power and no heavy equipment. Each tube weighs 65 lbs. dry and 6300 lbs. when filled with water. They roll up for easy storage after each deployment.
Many large cities like New York and Miami already have Tiger Dams™ systems in place to protect most exposed areas of their cities.
