High tides Oct 3 Md

Oxford, St Michales, Chestertown.

Any thoughs

Re: High tides Oct 3 Md

So apparently this am high tide in Tolchester was 2-1/2' above normal.

Here it was sufficiently high to reach over a power pod and blow breakers.

Barometric pressure? A low pressure system will increase the height of tides.

Re: High tides Oct 3 Md

Interesting article. It does sound like we had a very large area involved.

I didn't make the boat show">Annapolis boat show this year, but it's not unusual for them to flood. A 2-1/2' Above normal would have been very apparent and made a mess of things.
