Abstract
King Tides are the highest high tides in the year, usually peaking in the Spring and Fall. In South Florida, King Tides contribute to flooding along the coast and in other low-lying areas when the storm water system becomes overwhelmed with sea water. The water comes up through the sewer system, flooding streets and other areas. The tidal flood water can bring brackish water through storm drains inland.
