Re: Another Look

I hope this isn't the wrong place to ask this, but I'd like some information on storm surge with a Cat 4/5. I know about being on the "good" side vs "bad" side. I learned a lot about surge from Katrina. So my question is, does the surge stay with the storm or does it expand out, like dropping a rock into a pond? What are the surge implications at the point of the hard right turn?

In other words, even if you're on the 'good' side, do you still have to worry about surge ahead of the storm?
