Coastal Residents Brace for King Tides as Storm Rolls In

SEAL BEACH, Calif. — 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.

Doug Kolk shows us what to expect.
