Hurricane-driven storm-surge flooding can cause significant property damage when high winds and low pressure causes water to amass inside the storm, releasing a powerful rush over land when the hurricane moves on shore.  The CoreLogic analysis measures damage from storm surge and does not include potential damage from wind and rain associated with hurricanes.

Methodology
CoreLogic generates storm surge data using the company's comprehensive parcel database of property-level data for more than 131 million parcels nationwide.  After identifying a region's vulnerability to storm surge given on-shore and off-shore geographic attributes and population density, CoreLogic identifies all residential properties within a predicted storm surge area and analyzes it against the associated property value of each home.
