King Tides bring minor coastal flooding to the Bay Area

King tides or extreme high and low tides will occur January 1 and 2 resulting in minor coastal flooding. These extreme tides occur when the sun, moon and earth are in proper alignment.

Please take precaution if you live in low-lying areas along the immediate coastline, bay fronts, marshes and sloughs including: nearby parking lots, coastal trails, sidewalks, underpasses and even roadways that are not ordinarily impacted by tides.
