New Hurricane Storm Surge Risk Maps

National forecasters will be introducing new maps for the Atlantic hurricane season this year that show not only the potential winds, but the potential for flooding from storm surges. The maps are being introduced because it was found that most Americans living on hurricane-vulnerable coastlines were paying too much attention to the wind strength predictions and not enough to storm surge in deciding whether to evacuate. Storm surge specialist Jamie Rhome of the National Hurricane Center said, "We are not a storm surge savvy nation. Yet storm surge is responsible for over half the deaths in hurricanes." The new maps, which will be issued 48 hours before landfall and updated every six hours, will enable people to see whether their property is likely to flood.
