Flood mortality is still a serious concern in both developed and developing countries, requiring a deeper understanding to identify hazardous factors and mitigate the life losses. with this database, we compared the flood fatalities occurred in the period 1990-2022 in two Mediterranean regions characterized by different natural and anthropogenic frameworks and located in western Algeria and southern Italy, respectively. The main goal is to detect, either common features controlling flood mortality or typical factors causing local differences among the two areas, in order to identify the drivers of flood mortality and suggest how alleviate their impact applying mitigation strategies customized to the detected failures. With these purposes we created the database containing information 242 flood fatalities occurred in the two regions in the 33-year study period, including time and place of fatal accidents, age and gender of the victims, death circumstances and victim’s behavior.
