Can we Assume that Certain Assets Would Experience Increased Utilization During a 100-year Storm Event? For Example, a Secondary Terminal Could See an Increased Number of Passengers if Damage Restricts Access to a Primary Terminal.

Yes, it can be assumed that certain assets would experience increased utilization during a 100-year storm event; however, data documentation must be provided to support this assumption indicating 1) the historical precedence for the assumption, 2) the estimated level of increased utilization, and 3) the basis for the estimated increase. In general, assumptions based on predicted behavior will require much more stringent documentation than for historic events.
