The Nationwide Operational Assessment of Hazards (Project NOAH) on Tuesday warned that 23 areas including Manila are at risk of storm surges due to tropical storm Glenda.

In its website, Project NOAH indicated the storm surge to be generated by Glenda could reach as high as 3.0 meters in some areas.

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).
