One of the most important problems in flood manegment is the damages induced by this phenomenon. Expected annual damage (EAD) is an important index for basin vulnerability against flood. Prediction of flood damages requires the analysis of spatial and temporal risk and must be calculated by the combination of hydrologic, hydraulic and economic models. In this research, the uncertainty was considered in the flood risk analysis. The probability of flood occurrence was calculated by the parabolistic model. By using the river analysis systems software (HEC-RAS) and the geographic information system (GIS) and utilizing the Google-Earth software, the floodplains of Zayande Roud river in Esfahan province were investigated with the  return period of 25, 50, 100, 200 and 500 years. The Monte Carlo method was also sed to perform the uncertainty analysis in the proposed method. The logarithmic persion type III was selected as the best distribution of flood. The damage-stage relationship was calculated as well. Based on the uncertinity analysis, the river discharge could be regarded as the major parameter in the uncertainty of EAD.
