  • Description:
    Storm tide height frequency distributions are developed on the coast of Virginia, Maryland and Delaware for the National Flood Insurance Program. Storm tides are computed from a full set of climatologically representative hurricanes using the National Weather Service numerical-dynamic storm surge model, Winter storm effects are estimated from tide gage records, Storm tide levels from all storms are shown in coastal profile between annual frequencies of 0.10 and .002. This report is intended for use in estimating actuarial risk to buildings from coastal floods and in flood plain management.
