VDEM and National Hurricane Center Provide Storm Surge Videos
During a hurricane or other tropical storm system, the greatest threat to life is actually from the water, not from the wind. Short, informative videos on storm surge – what it is and what it can do – are available from the Virginia Department of Emergency Management and from the National Hurricane Center. Links to these videos can be posted on websites , shared on social media and printed in publications to help Virginia’s residents and visitors understand this serious danger associated with hurricane season.
