Additionally, there are minimum floodplain management thresholds for communities participating in flood insurance programs including building new or improved residences above the minimum floodplain level, floodproofing existing structures, and preventing construction in floodplains.These approaches also apply to high velocity wind, storm surge, and high waves in addition to floodplains.   Hagerty's work on the Hurricane Katrina recovery and the Hurricane Sandy recovery both involve floodplain management.
