You know, most will tell you everything is bigger in Texas. And, in most instances, that would be a super-sized compliment, but recently the state landed on a not so desirable list. The state was listed number 3 among states at greatest risk for storm surge damage.
The unusual combination of shallow waters along with a gently rolling coastline means that the Texas coastline easily forms what is called a natural shelf. In the event of hurricane type winds or other tropical storms, this shelf allows the surge to form ahead of the storm. When hurricane or tropical storm type winds blow onshore, the surge makes the storm that much more damaging.
