Coastal Flood Index Report

The coastal flood index report (forecast or actual) can be generated for any location, county or zip code (when applicable).  It calculates the onshore wind component of the wind and demonstrates this in report form and also in graphical form.

The following is an example of an actual detailed analysis report for Mobile, AL, with Hurricane Georges, showing the hourly "onshore wind component", a key factor in the flood index.  Positive values indicate onshore wind flow.  The system can also graph the index (as shown further below).
