  • Description:
    "Water Level stations operated by NOAA's National Ocean Service, Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS) recorded elevated water levels during the landfall of Hurricane RITA from Vaca Key, FL to Port Isabel, TX. Station location information is contained in Appendix 1. All water level observations are measured above the standard chart datum Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW), based on the National Tidal Datum Epoch 1983-2001 (see Appendix 2). Water level heights are plotted in meters, and tabular values are given in both feet and meters. This report summarizes the highest observed water levels, referred to as the Storm Tide, which is the sum of the storm surge and the astronomic tide. Differences between observed water levels and predicted astronomical tides are also provided. For the purposes of this preliminary report, any occurrence of Storm Tide Anomoly is discounted"--Summary.
