This study proposes the framework of real-time "probabilistic" storm water level prediction and then examines the prediction for a model typhoon, which crosses or passes by target ports in Japan's Seto Inland Sea. The prediction includes the storm surge simulation for 109 typhoon tracks and provides the probability of a disastrous storm water level for the port facility and coastal defense.
