Stormsurge Map

Stormsurge API

  • Get storm surge data from the SLOSH model quickly and conveniently, and use it in your application. The Stormsurge API was used to create the Stormsurge Map linked to above. For example, searching for "Miami Mercy Hospital Emergency Department" will zoom in on a location in Miami which is heavily exposed to storm surge risk. The third-party Google Places API is used to convert this search into latitude-longitude coordinates, in this case perhaps lat=25.7401141, lon=-80.2138516 in decimal degrees. The Stormsurge API is then used to fetch the four closest SLOSH model data points. Markers are drawn at the location of each data point, and the maximum water height for each hurricane category is displayed in tables. Using cURL, the Stormsurge API is called as follows:

    curl -H "x-api-key: YOUR_API_KEY" "https://api.sriha.net/stormsurge/query1?lon=-80.2138516&lat=25.7401141"

    which returns a GeoJSON object containing four point-type geometries:
