King Tides return to Orange County, causing flooding in some coastal communities

Some parts of Huntington Beach and Newport Beach were flooded overnight as King Tides returned to Orange County

FOX 11 was at Pacific Coast Highway and 19th Street early Thursday morning where water measured about a foot deep. Officials say city streets have been flooded at least three times this week.

"Public Works crews will be mobilized to monitor for dry weather flooding along some streets in Huntington Harbour & Sunset Beach," Newport Beach officials tweeted. 

King Tides happen between three and four times a year, usually during a full moon.

"When the tides exceed 7.0, certain areas are subject to dry weather flooding. If necessary, crews will be making use of portable water pumps to minimize flooding throughout the area," they added. 

Video from SkyFOX Wednesday night showed crews with Public Works pumping water off the street and back into Huntington Harbor. 

By Thursday, authorities reported the tide is falling along the OC coast, so another night of flooding isn’t expected.
