The storm surge is a coastal flood phenomenon of rising water, which is an important safe factor for harbor and coastal engineering. A mathematical model was established to help estimate the rising water during the No. 9711 typhoon in Weifang harbor, which is protected by the double long submerged breakwaters. It is shown from simulated results that the model is able to reflect the changes of tides and currents around the harbor reasonable. The maximum wind set up in the Laizhou bay located by Weifang harbor from the prediction results is analyzed.
