Speculating Storm Surge

One of the most damaging consequences of a hurricane result from the wall of water, known as a storm surge, that gets pushed ashore. The National Hurricane Center has released an online mapping tool to help homeowners get a better sense of their neighborhood’s storm surge potential, and to estimate the effects of storms at different strengths.

Although every hurricane is individual, and storm paths are nearly impossible to predict, the tool can help homeowners understand their potential risks and plan ahead to mitigate the risk of hurricane and other tropical storms.
