With hurricane season on the horizon, state officials say they’re ready to weather the storms.

A pair of Florida State University researchers have a new way to better predict damage from hurricanes.

Professor Vasu Misra says the model will give forecasters a greater understanding of potential storm surge damages. 

Mirsa says, “As we move forward, this additional information will act as a complement for the forecaster who would like to warn the public about the strength of the storm, as well as possibly the size and intensity of the storm.”
