A storm surge is gradually increased in the Korean peninsula. Furthermore, this phenomenon is confined not only the Korean peninsula but also the whole world. A storm surge induced by storm, typhoon, or cyclone is a phenomenon that the water surface elevation is raising by the barometric pressure difference and this water level rising threatens the coastal facilities, settlement, or lives. Most of coastal region in our country are unsafe from this disaster. Even though we are not able to prevent the generation of this phenomenon, we can reduce the damages by investigating the kind of storm surge disaster. Once we finish this investigation, we can reduce the damages by offering the information for risk prior to an invasion of storm surge. This study, we analyzed the previously occurred storm surge damages, and this data can be utilized as a guide for those who live near the coastal region providing the information about the predicting scale of the storm surge
