AccuWeather predicts that Hurricane Michael's total damage and economic
impact in the US will be close to $15 bn,. "The greatest impacts will
be particularly along the coastline because of angry seas in a dangerous
storm surge being driven inland by onshore winds."

NWS: Storm Surge from Hurricane Michael Could be 'Catastrophic'
<Loading Image...>
[Expected surge across Tallahassee region 8-12 ft].
WLRN News, 09 Oct 2018 12:29Z
A Storm Surge Warning has been issued from the Okaloosa/Walton County line
to the Anclote River, which is near the Pasco/Pinellas county line. A life-
threatening inundation of water is likely in the warned area, with the
height of the water above normally dry ground potentially reaching 8 to 12
feet in areas from Indian Pass to Cedar Key. In a statement issued early
Mon evening, the National Weather Service Tallahassee said water level
rises this high could potentially be "catastrophic" to the NE Gulf Coast.
