King Tides & Flooding


Experts say the flooding is occurring because of a storm off the Southeast coast combined with periodic higher tides.

King Tides and salt water flooding will be an issue for another day here in South Florida and the Treasure Coast. Chilly temperatures will last until Tuesday morning. Another cold front will approach by the end of the week increasing rain chances here.

Pictures and videos posted to social media showed all the areas around Fort Lauderdale and Miami that flooding is taking place.

The large swells also caused the William O. Lockhart Pier in Lake Worth Beach to be closed Sunday.

Sunday morning’s high tide reached 10.45 feet at Fort Pulaski, just east of Savannah, Georgia.

The Sunday hog tide in Charleston Harbor reached 8.51 feet, which is the 10th highest level in the century of recording at that site.

However, the flooding has closed a number of roads but did not cause major damage.
