Abstract

Coastal zones are often threatened by storms that elevate water levels and increase the wave energy impacting the shoreline. These storm conditions result in coastal flooding and erosion hazards for communities, threatening lives, properties and infrastructure. Coastal impact Early Warning Systems (EWSs) are currently used to alert authorities of potential impacts prior to advancing storms. Effective EWSs provide important windows of opportunity to undertake mitigating actions to minimize the damage caused by a storm.
