Happy holidays and happy extreme tides! Higher than normal tides this year have fallen on the holidays, the last one was at Thanksgiving, this one was on Christmas eve. The extreme tides + higher sea level caused by El Nino + waves led to coastal flooding along Southern California (unfortunately leading to more line un-happy high tides). These pictures are from 25 December at Scripps Institution of Oceanography Pier and La Jolla Shores about an hour after the maximum water levels. If you have pictures of extreme high OR low tides, please send them our way via our citizen science efforts! See this page on how to do so and how we will use the images.
