May 18, 2015 — The Hazus team has deployed Hazus 2.2 Service Pack 01 (SP01). This release contains functional updates to the Flood Model. Hazus 2.2 SP01 was deployed through the auto-update tool built into Hazus. Users need only launch Hazus while connected to the internet and accept the automated patch installation to receive SP01. The updated homogeneous state data and the new dasymetric state data are available via the MSC Hazus download webpage for free, public download. If you already created a study region using the patch with the incorrect database, you will need to create a new study region with the new database. The previous study region should be deleted and any analysis rerun in the new study region. If you upgraded your Hazus software with SP01 prior to 10AM Eastern Time on May 26th, directions for users to update an .mdb file that may lead to inaccuracies are available on the MSC Hazus download webpage, under "Download the Software."
