1. Overview

The Probabilistic Tropical Cyclone Storm Surge product suite is intended to provide the emergency management community; federal, state, and local government agencies; media; maritime interests; and the general public with storm surge information that enhances their ability to make preparedness decisions specific to their own situations. The product originated from requests by users for additional tropical cyclone probabilistic information, and the National Research Council's Fair Weather Report encouraging probabilistic products. For the duration of the 2011 hurricane season, June 1 - November 30, 2011, the Tropical Cyclone Storm Surge Probabilities "gt2-25" products will be issued by NHC, while the 10-90% exceedance products are will be issued by MDL.
