Surges Ahead

With winds expected at 90 miles per hour, the storm is classified as a strong Category 1 storm. But forecasters are most concerned about storm surges that could raise water levels as high as 11 feet above normal levels and bring extreme flooding to major areas along the mid-Atlantic coastline, with rainfall expected to reach 12 inches in some areas.
