Apalachicola in Michaels' Storm Surge Bulls-Eye

apalachicola surge

The U-Surge Project has identified high water marks for 41 hurricanes and tropical storms at Apalachicola since 1900. Water levels reached 10 ft (3.05 m) above Annual Mean Sea Level on two separate occasions; from an unnamed hurricane in 1903 and Hurricane Elena in 1985. Models suggest that Apalachee Bay, a large body of water east of Apalachicola, has the potential to observe some of the highest storm surge levels in the U.S., however, a large or powerful hurricane would need to make landfall near Apalachicola, which is rare in hurricane climatology.
