Storm Surge Diagram

We discussed this diagram in class as we came up with a student-created definition for our vocabulary word: storm surge.

Storm surge diagram shows how the pressure of the hurricane pushes down on the body of water. The water is displaced (moved out of the way) in what looks like a large bump of water. This bump of water is pushed forward by the moving hurricane out onto the land where homes, businesses, roads, and bridges can be damaged by the unusual amount of flood waters.
