King Tides, an unusually high tide, is flooding Miami Beach and coastal cities around the world. A King Tide occurs when the increased gradational pull of a full moon causes a higher than usual tide--a King Tide. With the Super Moon occurring today their is concern that tide's will be unusually high.
Global warming and melting glaciers are behind rising King Tide's and threaten to flood coastal cities around the world.
NBC has a wonderful video on King Tides
