Coastal Residents Brace For King Tides As Storm Approaches
Description:Residents in Seal Beach are bracing for the arrival of what’s called the “King Tides.”
The super swells – dubbed California “King Tides” or “astronomical tides” – strike the coast between two to four times per year when the gravitational forces of the sun, Earth and a full moon are all in alignment.
Thursday and Friday the perfect combination is expected again.
