Back on page 8 of this thread I posted a link to a Google/GIS map. Below is a link to the same map but showing some different GIS layers.
I turned off the layer with the cone of uncertainty and turned on the layers “Storm_surge_flood” and “24_hr_rain/flooding_report”. Since the layer with the rain/flooding reports is ‘on top’ you can click those symbols and see a popup with all the attribute data the GIS server has for the thing that you clicked. Those spot reports often have info about wind speed.
When the map opens it is zoomed in a bit and centered on Merritt Island (Kennedy Space Center). The surge forecast shows that most of the island is expected to be underwater. Expected water depths are as follows: Blue > 1 ft Yellow > 3 ft Orange > 6 ft Red > 9 ft
For a link to some interesting metadata associated with this surge forecast, please click “About this map” in the upper left corner and scroll down to the entry for “Storm surge flood (7,9)” and follow the nowcoast link.
And if you are seeing this map for the first time and would like some tips for turning layers on/off etc, you will find that info by clicking "About this map" in the upper left corner.
