Arcee Suarez says, "ALAB NG ALON is my suggestion

Dante Torio says, "Storm surge = delubyong daluyon

Benjamin Vallejo Jr. says, "If there is already a word in the Philippine languages with the appropriate meaning, why create a new one? "Silakbo" has very little to do with oceanographic phenomenon but with the more intangible, like emotions. "Humbak" and "daluyong" specifically deal with oceanographic phenomena and this is within the objective meaning given to it by coastal communities. Again as I have suggested in my recent Rappler essay on the issue and using, this creation of new meaning cannot be left to scientists alone but to coastal communities. This will involve not just consulting Fr English's dictionary but people in coastal communities

V Fidel Quidote says, "My suggestion for the local term for storm surge is "ipo-ipong dagat".

Evelyn Cruz says, "PAGLUPIG, PAGSAKOP O PAGLUSOB NG DAGAT SA LUPA DALA NG BAGYO to shorten LUSOB NG DAGAT and in time would shorten to LUSOB DAGAT

Froilan Jamlang says, "How about "Higalon" ? It can be considered to be a proper name that can best describe a storm surge
