I am glad that the Feds have a Sense of Humor.


"The Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes (SLOSH) model is a computerized numerical model developed by the National Weather Service (NWS) to estimate storm surge heights resulting from historical, hypothetical, or predicted hurricanes by taking into account the atmospheric pressure, size, forward speed, and track data."

"Composite Approach - Predicts surge by running SLOSH several thousand times with hypothetical hurricanes under different storm conditions. The products generated from this approach are the Maximum Envelopes of Water (MEOWs) and the Maximum of MEOWs (MOMs)"

Flood Surge Map Manatee County

Zone A is the lowest and most likely to be flooded area, along the coasts and rivers. Zone A is under order to evacuate in Manatee County as of August 29, 2023.  The danger is from flood surge - water sent up against the shoreline by a hurricane at high tide.
