NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WIS) - A series of social media videos show extremely high tide along the streets of North Myrtle Beach early Friday morning and has continued into Saturday.
Twitter user Tracey562 posted a series of photos and video showing the high tide flowing up streets and flooding docks.
Other Twitter users say this is likely a “king tide,” which the National Ocean Service says is a colloquial term to describe the tide and its effects following a new or full moon.
North Mrytle Beach Fire and Rescue officials have urged people to stay off the roadways due to flooding throughout the area.
The king tide continued into Saturday as heavy rains swept through the state overnight.
