King Tide, Miami, 2017

October 5, 2017

Jeff Goodell and I were in Miami for King Tide last year.  Now it’s come around again, and it will only keep getting worse.

Miami Herald:

Pockets of South Florida were underwater on Thursday from heavy storms and high tides.

South Florida is under a flood advisory until 2:15 p.m. Thursday. A flood watch runs through Friday afternoon.

The combination of day-long rain and King Tides submerged parts of Brickell, Miami Beach and Doral, including 87th Avenue from 36th Street to the Dolphins Expressway. On streets and in parking lots, pedestrians with pants at wading length and no shoes made their way while dodging the wake from cars. Some cars stalled out from the rising water.

    They’re slowly getting used to it, like that notorious frog in the slowly heating pot of water.
