A generalized automated system for real time guidance for storm surge from tropical cyclones was initiated in 2006 and its capabilities have been steadily broadened since then. The ADCIRC Surge Guidance System (ASGS) was originally applied to Lake Pontchartrain but has been developed into a portable system that runs at a wide variety of HPC centers for the Gulf and Atlantic coasts on everything from a desktop PC to cluster architectures with thousands of processors. Recent developments and events will be described, including the guidance that was issued in real time for hurricanes Isaac and Sandy of 2012, as well as notable events and feature enhancements during hurricane season 2015.
