The understanding of flood phenomena regarding torrential rain, occurring in natural channels within urban areas represents a crucial aspect to increase safety and life´s standards of the populations, issues that are deeply related to a well-developed sustainable urban and spatial planning. In this regard, flows inside urban areas have great heterogeneity, therefore their characterization requires a formulation which explicitly incorporates this spatial variability. The present study intends to establish a parallel between the selected models, numerical and reduced, enabling to examine their contributions regarding the flow characterization and water height in natural channels within urban settlements located near the river mouth and inserted in hydrographic basins with accentuated orography, as is the case of Funchal urban area at Madeira Island. Based on the available resources, the geometric simplicity of the study case and the results, the most appropriate method is the programmed spreadsheet, providing prompt and reliable information for the design of better adapted hydraulic structures that can face this extreme phenomenon, checking the adaptability of existing structures, as well as in the decision-making process concerning urban planning, safeguarding the populations in similar conditions.
