Being that the capacitor appears as a short during the initial charging, the current through the diodes can momentarily be quite high. To reduce risk of damaging the diodes, a surge current limiting resistor is placed in series with the filter and load.

yes. Because the storm surge or the water picked up by the winds drop onto land and causes floods sometimes. Hurricanes can cause floods because they bring in storm surge.

No. A storm surge is caused by a large weather system with strong winds, such as a hurricane, driving seawater onto land. The storm surge cane cause severe coastal flooding.
