    hurricane storm surge is the biggest threat Hurricanes cause damage in three ways: wind, rain, and storm surge. This project explores the causes and effects of storm surge in hurricanes. While wind and rain are two of the most obvious effects of hurricanes, storm surge can be one of the most destructive. This project involves using the resources from the NSDL to understand why storm surge occurs, where it occurs, and what governs how bad it can be. There are steps you can take to help mitigate some of the damage caused by a hurricane or tropical storm. If your home is equipped with storm shutters, make sure you can quickly put them in place. Clear your yard of debris that could become projectiles in high winds and trim dead or overhanging branches from trees surrounding your home. It's also a good time to make a quick review of your home to make sure the roof sheathing is properly secured, that end gables are securely fastened to the rest of the roof, and that doors and garage doors are properly secured. For personal safety, identify what storm shelter is available to you and prepare an evacuation plan for your family. Also, make sure you have a hurricane survival kit that includes bottled water, a first aid kit, flashlights, a battery-operated radio, at least three days of non-perishable food items, blankets, clothing, prescription drugs, eyeglasses, personal hygiene supplies and enough cash for at least three days. If you are forced to evacuate your home, turn off all utilities and disconnect appliances to reduce the chance of additional damage and electrical shock when utilities are restored.
