Photos: High Tides Continue To Flood Areas

November 4, 2017 | 10 Comments

The excessively high tide today [Nov 4] of 4.3 feet resulted in areas across the island experiencing flooding in low lying areas – a scene duplicated on occasion over the last few weeks.

The Bermuda Weather Service Tide Tables show a high tide today of 1.3m/4.3′. The East End saw part of the Town Square in St George’s being covered with water, while the grass area next to Kindley Field Road had the waters of Ferry Reach encroaching the coastline, trapping some fish in the process.

Part of the long-term parking lot at the L.F. Wade International Airport also saw rising water with at least two cars sitting in the puddle. A Bermuda Skyport spokesperson recently said that with “the Island continuing to experience unusually high tides,” they wish to “advise the public that part of the long-term parking lot at the L.F. Wade International Airport has been closed indefinitely as a precaution.”

    Well we tried to tell you Bermuda would sink under the plp!

    Seas are rising faster than predicted. At what point are we going to hold the Department of Energy accountable for the objectives under the 2011 Bermuda Energy White Paper? At what point are we going to demand renewable energy from BELCO? At what point are we going to have a plan of action to change our energy future?

    • Zevon says:

      What has renewable energy got to do with the position of the Moon?

      • Kathy says:

        These are becoming regular occurrences in Bermuda. If you think this has nothing to do with climate change than just keep your head buried in the sand. Yes, the moon is a contributing factor but the fact that chunks of ice are calving off the Arctic, Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets at a record pace does give you a clue that it could have something to do with rising sea levels! It is called displacement.

      • garth says:

        nothing to do with the moon but,,renewable energy means less fossil fuel being burned which means less damaging emissions which means less damage to the ozone layer which means less global warming which means the polar caps wont melt as fast which means less flooding, jeez

    • Pooh Bear says:

      Oh for Pete’s sake! Get a grip! Belco’s CO ouptut is a drop in the bucket. Grazing bovines in NY State give off more greenhouse gases! Seriously, Chicken Little, calm down. Bermuda’s not sinking and sea levels rising hasn’t accelerated. Go for a drive. It may help you to relax.

    Just the King Tide.
    Full moon; time of year.
    Look it up.

  5. Neil B says:
