Hurricane Georges: Storm Surge in Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida   [open pdf - 10MB]

"Hurricane Georges (pronounced 'Zhorzh') made landfall Monday, September 28th 1998 along the Gulf Coast in the Ocean Springs/Biloxi, Mississippi area. Hurricane Georges' rain and wind caused severe coastal erosion, record flooding and several fatalities. The Mobile District Corps of Engineers (COE) was tasked by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to locate and survey High Water Marks (HWM) along the Gulf of Mexico beaches, river bays, sounds and estuaries where significant storm surge occurred. The Gulf Coast area was limited to the coastlines of Alabama, Mississippi and Northwest Florida. The purpose of this report is to present the HWM data."
