I think it would be better to describe the flood by a height, rather
than by a date. This way, it is generalisable to future floods.

Something like:

Obviously, we'd need to carefully define "height" (is it normally with
respect to some marker, or with respect to sea level, etc.?) Anyway,
the idea is that this field would describe under what conditions the
area (or way) is flood prone.
