Of all regular recurring natural hazards, tropical cyclones pose the most dangerous threat to the economical development and more than 250 million lives in most areas of China.

Typhoon induced rainfall and inundation disasters cause enormous damage in most coastal areas of China, such as river flood and land slide. After Comprising of several popular extreme value theories, one kind of Compound Extreme Value Distribution model (Poisson-Gumbel distribution) is applied to estimate different return level precipitation in the southeast coastal region of China in this paper. It is shown that the new model can give more reasonable and comprehensive predicted result than traditional methods.
