Storm surge is simply water that is pushed toward the shore by the force of the winds swirling around the storm. This advancing surge combines with the normal tides to create the hurricane storm tide, which can increase the mean water level 15 feet or more. In addition, wind driven waves are superimposed on the storm tide. This rise in water level can cause severe flooding in coastal areas, particularly when the storm tide coincides with the normal high tides. Because much of the United States' densely populated Atlantic and Gulf Coast coastlines lie less than 10 feet above mean sea level, the danger from storm tides is tremendous.

 How to make an Insurance Claim after a Storm.

http://www.onestorm.org/prepare/insurance-center/filingclaims/MakeInsuranceClaim.aspx

Contact your insurance agent as quickly as possible. Let them know about your losses. If you are relocated temporarily, provide the address and phone number that you can be reached. The claim process may begin in one of two ways. Your insurance company may send a claim form for you to complete or an adjuster may visit your home first, before you are asked to fill out any forms.

Take pictures of the damage, if possible, before beginning repairs. If you repair small items such as TV antennas, window covering, or fences before the adjuster arrives, it may be difficult to prove the damage.

South Carolina’s coastal homeowners have to work harder to find the right insurance policy since a crisis two years ago that left 30,000 without coverage — but at least now they can get a policy.
“It’s a good thing; there’s options,” said Scott Richardson, S.C. Insurance Department director, who promoted a “free market solution” to the crisis in late 2006. Consumers now have a wider range of choices, he said.
And they have more companies competing for their business, which could result in lower rates. The state has attracted 14 new home insurance companies in the past year and a half since enacting legislation that relies heavily on tax credits — and is being held up as a model for other coastal states dealing with the crisis.

Insurers started dropping policies in late 2006, after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita devastated the Gulf Coast. They were worried about surviving another catastrophic hit.
That put many coastal homeowners in a bind and left state governments scrambling to come up with a solution.
South Carolina’s answer was the Coastal Omnibus Act, which enticed insurers to enter the state’s market and write policies along the coast, Richardson said.
