Abstract:

Surface meteorological and coastal storm-surge data for Hurricane Emily 22 August - 6 Septemher 1993 are presented. These data include maximum surface wind speed and minimum surface central pressure histories, surface wind analyses at times of Emilys closest approach to land, 8 hr prior, and 4 hr following and storm surge data in both tabular and graphic form for the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The report documents Emilys effects in the primary area of impact. Emilys coastal effects are noteworthy in that inundation of the barrier island system was due to high waters from Pamlico Sound rather than the Atlantic Ocean. MM
