On top of climate-change-related changes in sea level, water height will continue to vary over time as a result of weather-related effects, including storm surges. Storm surge is water that is pushed toward the shore by the force of winds that swirl around the storm. This progressing surge combines with the normal tides to create the hurricane storm tide, which can increase the mean water level by 15 feet or more. Storm surge begins to grow when the hurricane is still far out at sea over deep water9.
