Surge of the Storm
A storm surge is a mound of ocean water that moves ashore with a hurricane. It is caused by high winds of a hurricane pushing on the ocean’s surface and the low pressure at the hurricane’s center. The Surge of the Storm education resource is a Grades 5-12 classroom activity which poses the question, “How does the storm surge of a hurricane affect the low-lying areas along the coast?” It includes web references and related material.Surge of the Storm Word Document
