Storm Surge is an offshore rise of water associated with a low pressure weather system, typically tropical cyclones and strong extra tropical cyclones. The storms produce strong winds that push the water into shore, which can lead to flooding. This makes storm surges very dangerous for coastal regions, like New York City for example. During Hurricane Sandy, storm surge in Battery Park, New York City, was 9.41 feet, surpassing the record set by Hurricane Donna in 1960.
