September King Tides

7960963872?profile=original
The effects of the seasonal King Tides were amplified by strong winds and heavy surf that pushed water into the inlets and flooded low areas along the Intracoastal Waterway. On Sept. 21, flooding was bad enough that officials closed both Ocean Avenue in Ocean Ridge and A1A in Manalapan. ABOVE: In Briny Breezes it was hard to tell where the pavement ended and the marina began. Residents came out to see where the worst of the flooding had occurred. Photos by Jerry Lower/The Coastal Star 7960963895?profile=originalThe King Tide flooding along Ocean Avenue in Ocean Ridge resulted in at least one small car stalling. As the water receded, the driver was able to get the car started again and continued on her way out of town.
