New High Tide Record due to Floods in South Carolina and Georgia
A violent storm off the southeast coast, combined with periodic high tides, has caused coastal flooding off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia (Charleston and Savannah). The tide reached 10.45 feet (3.19 meters) yesterday. According to statistics by the meteorological service, this is the 4th highest tide in the last 100 years on the coast, and the last one of the same level occurred in 2016.
Authorities said the flooding had closed many roads and major highways between cities. Due to heavy rains, the Veterans Day parades in Charleston were also canceled. The high tide on Sunday is the result of a four-day rise in sea level, washed ashore by two winds, severe autumn storms at sea, and periodic King Tide. This month, the tide has reached the level of three major floods, and we already have known what a negative impact of floods on the whole world!
