Highest Storm Water Levels

This graphic depicts highest water levels along the coast throughout the duration of this storm event. Highest water levels are measured in feet above Mean Higher High Water (MHHW). MHHW is defined as the average daily highest tide. Inundation typically begins when water levels exceed MHHW.

These values are based on preliminary observed water levels from NOAA and partner tide stations. Verified water level data should be available within a month of the event and can be provided upon request.
