This is a script written in the R programming language. The script is used to train and apply two data-driven models, Random Forest and Poisson regression. The target variable is the number of flood reports per storm event in Norfolk, VA USA. The input variables for the models are environmental conditions on an event time scale (or daily if no flood reports were made for an event). This script was used to produce results published in a paper in the Journal of Hydrology: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2018.01.044.

R version = 3.3.3
