Storm Surge - Call (212) 789-9077 for more info. tmba.tv/broadcastanimation/weathergraphics/storm-surge/ TMBA created this animation to illustrate storm surges for the Weather Channel.

Hurricane storm surge flooding causes a tremendous amount of damage. These storm surges are considered to be the cause for 90% of deaths that occur when hurricanes come ashore. Although inland flooding has been responsible for the greatest number of deaths in recent years, storm surges still remain the largest single threat related to hurricanes.

Storm surge is the water that is pushed toward the shore by the force and strength of the winds circling around center of the storm. This water that is being pushed towards the sore gains even more force when it is combined with the force of the normal incoming tide. This hurricane storm tide increases the water level by 15 feet or higher. The strong winds associated with the hurricane also create wind driven waves on top of the hurricane storm tide.
