Short summary
The combination of human exposure, extreme weather events and lack of adaptation strategies to cope with flood-related impacts can potentially increase losses not only on infrastructure but also on human lives. The main objective of this work was to develop a flood social susceptibility index for the continental Portuguese territory. The main results showed that the proposed index correctly identified populations less prepared to avoid flood effects or able to cope with them.
