King Tides in Charleston, SC!

King Tide | Charleston, SC | November 2018

I’ve never heard of a King tide until the past few years. A King Tide is a pretty non-scientific term that describes the highest tides that have been occurring lately – Read more about King Tides via mycoast.org!

A King Tide can turn roads into lakes – the water literally spilling over the roads making them impassable. We’re seeing more and more of this in Charleston, SC, where the waterways swell and eventually flood. When a King tide coincides with a heavy rainfall “event” (as they’ve become known as) the results can be problematic, especially for those in low lying areas. I feel for people who have to deal with this over and over again.

Climate change is real – the weather has changed SO MUCH just in the time that I’ve lived in Charleston (1989). It’s crazy and we all need to do our part to help the environment prosper for the generations to come…
