Description: From the page;
Along the coast, storm surge is often the greatest threat to life and property from a hurricane. In the past, large death tolls have resulted from the rise of the ocean associated with many of the major hurricanes that have made landfall. Hurricane Katrina (2005) is a prime example of the damage and devastation that can be caused by surge. At least 1500 persons lost their lives during Katrina and many of those deaths occurred directly, or indirectly, as a result of storm surge.

 

Storm Surge vs. Storm Tide

Storm surge is an abnormal rise of water generated by a storm, over and above the predicted astronomical tides. Storm surge should not be confused with storm tide, which is defined as the water level rise due to the combination of storm surge and the astronomical tide. This rise in water level can cause extreme flooding in coastal areas particularly when storm surge coincides with normal high tide, resulting in storm tides reaching up to 20 feet or more in some cases.

Description

From the site:

"Stormreportmap.com started in early 2005 just as the Google Map "hacks" were starting to become more mainstream. Initially, the site started out as a "can I do this" application and morphed into an operation that become useful to the general public, insurance adjusters, schools and ever the Department of Defense. Beginning in late 2006, the site was down due to code changes that Google made to the Maps API. Those changes, unfortuntely, broke the development work that I had put into the initial map "hack". In early 2008, the site was brought back online with the same using the same layout and design that was initially created. In June of 2008, the site was re-introduced along with a new layout, new map icons and greater features. In the future, the site will boast a fee-based premium area that will allow members the ability to expand the search capability for storm reports across multiple states, across multiple states or even the ability to export or print out storm reports."
