The main flooding event of 2012 is associated with Hurricane Sandy, which went ashore at New Jersey. It has been called New Jersey's Katrina (Louisiana, Mississippi; 2005), based on the storm surge impacts.
There was flooding in spring 2012 that generated no requests for assistance. Hurricane Isaac created flood problems primarily in Louisiana, and is covered primarily here in the EDEN Hurricanes topic area.
See these 2012 EDEN pages: Superstorm Sandy or Hurricane Sandy.

Use "Flooding 2012" as the event name for floods not attributed to hurricanes. For hurricane-related flooding, use the event name "Hurricanes 2012"
