Hey Deborah,

the source of my posting was a forwarded message from Chris Gilmore with the Army Corps of Engineers.

Go figure, the same agency disagreeing with an interpretation. it could be in the question. My question was simple- does the probability of experiencing a 100 yr storm increase each year in a 100 year period if the event is not experienced?

Craig, I will forward your posting about 100 year definition of probability
of the event in any given year to the president of the American Society of
Civil Engineers for Louisiana, Tim Ruppert, who works at the Corps of
Engineers, whom I quoted from his published article in a nationally
recognized magazine. Can you post your source, too, so we can find the
correct answer? If you don't care to name the person, please name the
organization that person represents. Ddk
