Storm surge is water that is blown inland and uphill during a tropical storm or hurricane. For all tropical storms and hurricanes, the National Hurricane Center issues storm surge warnings and watches and it does forecasts for the threat of storm surge flooding.
See the storm surge potential here, for Tropical Storm Nate, but know it’s only an estimate that changes with new data. http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/refresh/graphics_at1+shtml/212738.shtml?inundation#contents
