Exclamation 
Once every 2,3 years we get king tides here. Tidal waters reach all the way up top the sand dunes at local beaches, flooding the streets.. public piers would be off limits until the tides recide. Brace for impact

mrmbb333 On YouTube keeps a record of these tides and unusual coastal flooding.

If you live in a coastal area it is best to be prepared for higher than the expected or predicted tides.

If you swim in the sea then be aware of the possibility of rip currents even if that beach has previously been safe. It is best to swim where there are beach guards.

Sadly the tide has claimed some lives:

Quote: A 47-year-old Portland man and his two children were swept into the ocean by a large wave near Cape Falcon. The 7-year-old girl later died at the hospital; the 4-year-old boy remains lost at sea. Their father is expected to survive.

"First responders have reported that they were on an off beach trail and when the waves came up and pulled them in," the family said in a statement Monday. "Our hearts as you can imagine could not be more broken as both children were loved beyond measure by our entire family and so many others."
