Storm surge animation – Super Typhoon Haiyan

Animation of storm surge of Super Typhoon Haiyan making landfall:

The model predicts maximum surge levels exceeding 5 metres near Tacloban City. The peak surge occurs some time after the cyclone has made landfall. At this point, the winds near Tacloban City change direction from easterly to southeasterly, and the cyclone starts pushing water into San Pedro and San Pablo Bay (i.e. the northwesterly part of Leyte Gulf).
