The king tide is the highest predicted high tide of the year, produced by the orbits and alignments of the Earth, Moon and Sun. In Miami Beach, the king tides occur during the months of September, October, and November.
King tides are expected to be the highest tides of the year over the next week. Residents and visitors are encouraged to stay safe and exercise precaution during this period.
Avoid tidal flood-prone areas such as State Road A1A (Indian Creek Drive) southbound between 40 and 29 streets during the high-tide periods. For your safety, street closures may occur periodically in this area. Seek alternates routes if necessary.
The city's mitigation efforts include temporary pumps, an innovative barrier dam along Indian Creek Drive, drain plugs, and a vacuum truck. We have also expanded the parking flood relief program to the residents in the Indian Creek neighborhood. Temporary traffic detours may be necessary.
Tides can vary based on a number of conditions and take two to four hours to rise and recede. Please factor in those periods.
