The present study is focused on the area of Miami, which clearly represents a hotspot of human and economic coastal flood exposure (Herweijer et al. 2008). Its metropolitan area has a population of more than 5 million inhabitants. The number of inhabitants has grown by 35% since 1990 and it keeps growing; new residential and commercial constructions have been widespread.

There is a large cluster of earthquakes at the eastern section of the Mosha fault. Spatio-Temporal Analysis of Theran’s Historical Earthquakes Trends 13 Fig. 8. The Ripley’s K function for earthquakes associated to the Mosha fault The magnitudes based on the occurrence date of earthquakes graph can show the chronological activities of the fault. Such a graph for the Mosha fault is shown in Figure 9. Fig. 9. The magnitudes based on the occurrence date of Mosha fault earthquakes There is a gap between 1973 and 1988 and another one between 1988 and 1998; the movements were not recorded during these periods.

We found the maximum levels that water can reach during the different events in each area. 5m up to 5m in the extreme event of a Category 5 storm. By an overlay of these results and the insured value of residential, industrial and commercial areas visualized on a GIS, we determined which current insured built-up areas are at risk of storm surge and estimated the economic insured value of the entire assets that are flooded by each storm surge category. These results are based on a very detailed economic database with a territorial scale of 100 and 500 square meters for the coastal area, and of 1 and 5 km for the hinterland.
