Some Areas in Florida Could See 9ft Storm Surge

in Weather

Eastward sides of hurricanes are notorious for storm surge. Why should hurricane Michael be any different?

 Current predictions from NOAA show a potential 9ft storm surge in low lying areas, along the eastern track of hurricane Michael's path. Storm surge can be the most deadly part of a hurricane, often more deadly than wind and usually containing debris that acts as a battering ram. Storm surge often strips structures to their foundations. Low lying areas should head the evacuation orders of their government officials and get out of the area.
