Storm surge… a tropical cyclone’s most deadly threat. Many may recall images that flooded news outlets in 2018 following Category 5 Hurricane Michael after it sent a nearly 15-foot wall of water into the seaside town of Mexico Beach, FL. If you’ve experienced storm surge, you know how quickly a hurricane can send a wall of water rushing into homes and businesses, washing away lives and livelihoods. Today, we’re joined by Jamie Rhome, leader of the Storm Surge Unit at the National Hurricane Center. Jamie will offer us an inside look to the inner-workings of this life-saving agency and its critical forecasts we depend upon. If you’ve ever heard the phrase, “Hide from the wind, run from the water,” today’s discussion will make you understand why.
