  • Description:
    Storm tide height frequency distributions on the coast of Puerto Rico are developed for the National Flood Insurance Program by computing storm tides from a full set of climatologically representative hurricanes, using the National Weather Service hydrodynamic storm surge model adapted to local conditions. Hurricane parameters needed for the storm tide computation are analyzed and presented. Tide levels for the southern coast of Puerto Rico are shown in coastal profile between annual frequencies of 0.10 and .002. Similar tide levels for San Juan on the northern coast and Mayaguez on the western coast are also presented, and tentative interpolated tide levels of .01 annual frequency for the remaining coasts. Wave effects on the north coast are discussed.
