Coastal Storm surges

Storm surge is the abnormal rise in water level, over and above the regular astronomical tide, caused by a severe storm such as a tropical cyclone or nor'easter. Large waves also raise coastal water levels and ride on top of the storm surge to cause extreme damage.

Coastal inundation is the flooding of normally dry, low-lying coastal land, primarily caused by severe weather events along the coasts, estuaries, and adjoining rivers. These storms, which include hurricanes and nor’easters, bring strong winds and heavy rains. The winds drive large waves and storm surge on shore, and heavy rains raise rivers. (A tsunami – a giant wave caused by earthquakes or volcanic eruptions under the sea or landslides into the sea – is another kind of coastal inundation, but should not be confused with storm surge.)
