At King Tide, Storms Pound Miami

October 15, 2016

Be careful what you wish for.

I’ve been quiet lately because I’m in Miami Beach for the King Tide flooding, and spending a lot of time in the field shooting.

Torrential Tropical rain hit Miami tonight during high tide, on the eve of the year’s highest tide predicted for tomorrow morning.  All over Miami beach, streets were overflowing their curbs with storm water, as saturday night revelers sought shelter in buildings and under overhangs.

I’ll be out on the streets with camera in the am.

    Oregon & the Pac NW got hit with a strong storm that was supposedly a remnant of Typhoon Songda, winds around 60mph with gusts closing in near 100 mph.
    And that was only a couple days after an F2 tornado hit the town of Manzanita, OR which is on the Pacific coast.

    An interesting report in the Sun Sentinel, the increase in sea level rise is getting markedly more noticeable and an accompanying professor is recommending infrastructure changes such as valves, drains, berms, sea walls and pipes.

    If you review this at the end of this century I wonder what you would think, how tall the seawalls would be needed ?

    “A 25-year resident of the neighborhood, he said he has never seen the annual high tides increase as fast as they have in the past 10 years.”
