Forecast model of storm surges due to tropical storm “Glenda.”
A storm surge is an abnormal rise of water generated by a storm over and above the tide level. The surge height refers to the height of water above the sea level at the time of the storm surge peak. Yolanda storm surges were as high as 5-6 meters (16-19 feet).
“The approximate time of the surge is when the center of the typhoon is near,” Project NOAH said.
When super typhoon ‘Yolanda’ hit the Philippines, the storm surges were as high as 5-6 meters (16-19 feet).
