This web map displays a seamless national map of near worst case storm surge flooding (inundation) scenarios using the National Weather Service (NWS) SLOSH model maximum of maximums (MOMs) product for different hurricane wind categories at a high tide
anyone living in hurricane-prone coastal areas along the U.S. East and Gulf Coasts can now evaluate their own unique risk to storm surge. This map makes it clear that storm surge is not just a beachfront problem, with the risk of storm surge extending several miles from the immediate coastline in some areas. “You don’t have to think very hard about it, just look at your location on the national map to find out if you are in an area at risk for storm surge from a future tropical storm or hurricane”, said Brian Zachry, Ph.D., NHC storm surge specialist.

Category 5 (SLOSH MOMs) Storm Surge Inundation
Inundation Depth
