Just this past weekend residents along Golden Isles Drive experienced some of the first days of the 2021 King Tide Season. King Tide Flooding is expected on the following dates:
- September 9 – 11
- October 5 -11
- November 3 – 9
- December 2 - 7
During these dates, if you live in or need to visit a low-lying tidally influenced part of the City, try to plan your trips to avoid high tide times. You can check high tide times here. During King Tide events, be careful driving through or walking through flood water as hazards can be hiding where you can’t see them. If you MUST drive through flood water (we highly recommend against it), please be mindful of your vehicle’s wake and its impact on neighboring homes and/or pedestrians. If you see King Tide flooding, please take pictures (ideally with location information) and send them to email@example.com.
As the sea level rises, the frequency of tidal flooding is expected to increase to nearly 50 times per year by 2030 and over 200 times per year by 2045. It's not too late to make changes in your life and our City to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to reduce these future impacts.
