In this section the past hazard, events of Transylvania County are recorded and analyzed (see
Appendix A). This information is identified by using both primary and secondary research
materials, which will include but is not limited to reports from local, state, and national
agencies, as well as, media accounts, state and local weather records, and conversations with
key personnel and residents in Transylvania County. This analysis will include the possible
severity and magnitude, as well as, the potential impact of damage within the each governing
jurisdiction from future hazards. All risks identified in this plan effect all jurisdictions
participating in this plan.

For the purpose of ranking hazards affecting the planning area, in order of the importance
for mitigating their effects, a hazard index has been assigned (see Table 3.1) that takes into
account the anticipated Frequency of Occurrence (see Table 3.2) and specific Consequences
of Impact (see Table 3.3). This is not meant to be a scientific process, but will serve as a way
to prioritize mitigation measures based on the potential frequency and the likely extent of
damage from hazards known to affect the community. This ranking will be considered when
specific mitigation measures are prioritized for implementation, along with other factors,
such as stated community goals, citizen concerns, on-going projects, and opportunities for
funding.
