Storm Surge--Not Just For Hurricanes

Well, after a summer of extreme rainfall and flooding inland, this is the next natural disaster:
Hundreds of people on the east coast of England have been evacuated from their homes in advance of potentially life-threatening floods this morning.

The Environment Agency (EA) has warned of "extreme danger to life and property" in coastal areas of Norfolk and Suffolk and parts of Kent and Essex amid signs a storm surge could lead to flash flooding. But it said today that water levels were not as high as originally feared.

And, it's the same storm that pummeled the east coast of the US a few days ago. We're all connected.
