About this product:
Description: These graphics show the overall chance that storm surges will be greater than a user selected number of feet above normal tide levels during the 3 days after i
ssuance. The graphic is based upon an ensemble of Sea, Lake, and Overland Surges from Hurricanes (SLOSH) model runs created using the current National Hurricane Center (NHC) official hurricane advisor
y. Storm surge probabilities depend on the historical accuracy of NHC's forecasts of hurricane track, and wind speed, and an estimate of storm size.
