A storm surge is a mound of ocean water that is driven toward coastal areas by hurricane winds. The correct answer is A. it is basically a flood can happen at the coast when the very strong winds blowing in the area. Giant waves are extremely dangerous waves that occur in the sea, not near the coasts, though. Tsunamis are not created by winds, but by earthquakes, eruptions and explosions underwater. The cyclone is a type of wind.
