Abstract: Damaging Hydrogeological Events (DHEs) are episodes of severe weather conditions characterised by strong winds, heavy rainfall, landslides, flooding, and sea storms. Each type of phenomenon developing during DHEs is characterized by a proper dynamic and, according to the social and economical framework in which develops, it can cause different impacts on people and properties. Despite during storms all these phenomena occur at the same time (or in a short while), often amplifying damage and hinting emergency management, studies available in literature tend to analyze each type of phenomenon separately, supplying a fragmentary framework of either causes (rainfall) and effects (damage). A database concerning DHEs occurred in Calabria (southern Italy) since 1800 has been recently updated, by continuing a historical research which has been started since 2000. Basing on this huge amount of data (more than 10,000 records), an analysis of the series of DHEs occurred in a selected area/period is carried out. Both the methodological framework for DHEs analysis, based on damage classification and a classification of different DHEs types are presented.
