What is a storm surge?

    A storm surge is a swell in offshore water level. It results from high winds on the ocean’s surface, and can be dangerous at high tide, especially in places with a big difference between low tide and high tide. Storm surges are usually associated with tropical storms because of they form in low pressure systems.

    Storm surge, sometimes called storm tide, is a surge of water caused by high winds from hurricanes or tropical cyclones. These high winds cause water to rise higher than ordinary sea level. This causes flooding and can be especially devastating in areas that have low and high tide cycles. Storm surges can reach up to 15 feet high.
