Watch the King Tides Flood Midway Drive

This time lapse video shows flooding from king tides along Midway Drive from Jan. 28, 2022, to Feb. 2, 2002. King tides occur when the orbits and alignment of the Earth, moon and sun combine to produce the greatest tidal effects of the year and bring unusually high water levels that cause flooding. This stretch of Midway Drive floods regularly during king tide events.
