12239470497?profile=RESIZE_710xIt’s that time of year when high tide gets even higher, flooding low-lying areas. The appearance of king tides coincides with autumn’s full-moon and new-moon phases. Residents should expect flooded streets and soggy yards during these peak upcoming king tide periods: Oct. 14-17, Oct. 27-30, Nov. 12-15 and Nov. 26-29. Palm Beach County emergency managers suggest residents have a plan in place to move their vehicles to higher ground before a king tide event. Also, they recommend residents remove waste carts and recycling bins from the curb as soon as possible when a king tide event is expected. Another warning: Don’t walk through flood water if possible because it can pose a health or safety issue.
