King Tides: Another Round:

Higher tides and potential flooding for the next week

We are now experiencing round two of King Tides, the highest tides of the year. King Tides usually occur during the months of September, October, and November. 
The City of Miami Beach is expected to experience tidal levels about one foot higher than predicted. According to the City, “If this trend continues, we anticipate sunny day flooding to begin occurring for short periods of time in low-lying areas of the city. This will occur each day until the king tides recede after October 31.”


As always, a reminder to not drive through flood waters as less than a meter of water can float a car. Avoid walking in or coming in contact with flood waters as there could be hazards below the surface including pollutants and debris that you cannot see. 
Low-lying areas of concern where residents should be prepared and plan accordingly for potential flooding:
  • Indian Creek Drive from 29 to 41 streets
  • West Avenue and 8 Street
  • 1 Street and Alton Road
  • South Pointe Drive and Washington Avenue
  • 44 Street and Post Avenue (Muss Park) areas
  • North Bay Road from 43 to 63 streets
  • Bonita Drive
  • Marseille Drive and Rue Notre Dame
  • Crespi Boulevard and 79 Terrace
