Ensuring an external electricity supply to critical city components during flood events requires adequate urban grid planning. The proliferation of smart grid technologies means that such planning needs to assess how smart grids might function during floods. This paper proposes a method to qualitatively investigate robustness of electricity supply to smart grid consumers during flood events. This method builds on the Hazus methodology and aims to provide inputs for the risk analysis of urban grids.
