The November 2009 nor’easter formed from the remnants of Hurricane Ida and generated strong winds, heavy rain, and storm surge across the east coast of the United States. The height of the storm surge generated by the nor’easter was modelled throughout Virginia using SCHISM (Semi-implicit Cross-scale Hydroscience Integrated System Model). SCHISM outputs were translated to GIS and processed to be overlaid upon the LUBC (land use and bank cover) shoreline of coastal Virginia.
