Storm Surge Questions
Started to post this in the Matthew Thread, then decided while potentially related, was off topic.
During the storm discussion from a few weeks ago, someone mentioned that there was a site where you could see impact of storm surge. Is there a link?
Is there data where you can see historical water levels from Storm Surge?
How much of storm surge translates through inlets? For example, we hear a forecast for a 6ft storm surge. I would expect that is Surge + Tide level at the coast.
Using an example that I am familiar with, SE Florida, how does storm surge impact the water levels on the ICW.
For example in an approximate 20 mile stretch of coast there are 3 inlets (Government Cut, BakerHaulover, Port Everglades). Does the surge raise the water on the ICW the same amount? What impact does distance from the inlet have?
In some places the distance between the ICW and the Atlantic is not far - has the water level gone over in between the inlets?
As of early summer I no longer have a boat sitting in a slip in that area, but I can't help but run the scenario's if I did.
Thanks for any thoughts,
