Beware of a storm surge


BY JACKLYN STRINGER

Have you ever heard of a storm surge? A storm surge occurs when the water begins to rise gradually as the wind of a major storm gets closer to shore. Recently two hurricanes hit the United States. Irma caused a storm surge.  She is so powerful that she has sucked the water from bodies of water. Once she has reached the shore, that water is going to begin to rise, and it could be dangerous for anyone who is to witness the event.  The water will rise 10 to 15 feet above ground level and destroy everything in its path and cause flooding. People should stay away from the shore because one ever knows when the wind decides to change direction. All it would take is the direction of the wind to change from offshore to onshore.
