Extreme Tides Causing Widespread Coastal Flooding

NEW ZetaTalk - Chat Q&A for December 22, 2012

"What is the common denominator in high tides in the UK and Europe, California and British Columbia, Australia and Indonesia – all virtually at the same time, on December 13-14, 2012.  This is clearly from a severe wobble of some sort. There were many reports during this same time period of the Sun being too far South, the sunrise being too early and the sunset lingering and being late. A tilt of the Earth into opposition was responsible, and when the Earth flings about trying to accommodate the magnetic hosing coming from the N Pole of Planet X, sloshing of the oceans occurs. Why else would coastlines along both the Atlantic and the Pacific be involved, simultaneously?"


Further evidence of a worsening Earth wobble has presented itself as numerous reports and warnings of extremely high tides and coastal flooding were issued this week from across the U.K., northern France, eastern Ireland, eastern Australia, southern Vietnam, southern Indonesia and along the west coast of North America, all within the span of a few days.

The prevalent excuses being "high tides", "storm surge" and even "King Tide", the Zetas long ago predicted and have explained this phenomena in simple language, as well as the Establishment's excuses:

"The Earth wobble takes the form of a Figure 8, when seen from above the N Pole. For Europe, as we described in 2007, this forces Europe to tilt toward the northwest when the Sun is over Europe, to be followed by a swing of N America to the northeast as the Sun moves overhead there. This combined action acts like a pump, creating a void or vacuum of low air pressure in the N Atlantic. Warm humid air is pulled up into the N Atlantic. Cold air rushes down to fill the void, and swirling begins due to the Coriolis effect.

"Will this mean continuous hurricane activity along the European coast? This will be the minor effect, as with an increased wobble the storm surge will likewise increase, sending unprecedented high tides into the lowlands of Europe. Well before the 7 of 10 European tsunami Europe will be faced with having to evacuate vulnerable lowlands. The UK obviously takes the brunt of these storms, as has Norway, but it is where the elevation will drive the storm surge over the sea walls that evacuation will begin." 


"The base cause of these changes in ocean tides is the Earth wobble which developed as a result of the close proximity of Planet X to Earth. We warned that ocean tides would become erratic as this Earth wobble developed, pulling the waters along with the lurching Earth to disrupt the normal and anticipated tides."


"The establishment is now switching to high tides as an excuse, claiming that a storm surge is creating a high tide. Since the cause of a storm surge can be away from the shore, and not easily determined by the common man busy with his daily activities, this excuse is less easily challenged. The high tide or storm surge excuse will also move to tsunami, blaming a quake in some locale or another. But eventually, when the flood waters do not drain, the truth will out."

New Zealand: violent storm in Wellington [PHOTOS and VIDEO]

The waves reached a height of 4 meters yesterday, with a record of 8 meters recorded in the Cook Strait

June 15, 2015

The waves that hit yesterday on the south coast of Wellington today are just a memory. Stones as big as basketballs (refers the Wellington City Council) have taken to the streets of Lyall Bay, Wellington Airport, carried by a strong storm, generated by the combination of high tide and wind.

The waves reached a height of 4 meters yesterday, with a record of 8 meters recorded in Cook Strait, says Nick Zachar, MetService meteorologist.

Record high tides are expected on the French coast on Friday, and for a month. The phenomenon is striking in the scenery of Mont-Saint-Michel

Friday, February 20, 2015,



Sandbags, rocks, fences, dams: some coastal towns in the west of France, particularly in the Manche department, prepare to face the strong tides announced starting today.

"Of course I'm worried, even if the weather is reassuring and we have developed a unique system. But nature is strong, "said Alain Bachelier, mayor of Saint-Jean-le-Thomas, where about 140 homes were built below sea level

Mont-Saint-Michel is known for having faced major changes in water levels in France, among the most extreme in the world. Saturday the water level will rise again, up to nearly 15 meters against five meters for example in Saint-Gilles-Croix-de-Vie (Vendée). The impact of this increase depends on the time, particularly the winds.

"tide of the century" oceanic navy announced the event on March 21, 2015

The wave will rise with impressive speed

The tide coefficient (height difference between high and low tide in the same place) is now at 118 (maximum value corresponds to the high or low tide that is presented excluding the effects of weather.

The tidal coefficient will settle on 119 March 21 for the famous "tide of the century": in total, the coefficient will be greater than 100 for forty days in 2015.

This morning, shortly after 8 am, the ratio was already 116, providing, as you can see from the gallery, stunning views of Mont-Saint-Michel, an island again. The last 300 meters leading to the islet are underwater.

Extreme tidal flooding reported in UK, Newfoundland and Vietnam on December 4.

Worst Tidal Surge in 60 Years Batters UK (Dec 4)
Thousands of people were evacuated from their homes overnight as the highest tidal surge in 60 years moved along the East Coast of England.

Devastated residents watched their cliff-top homes disappear into the sea as the surge hit the East Anglia.

In Hemsby, Norfolk, five bungalows fell into the water as the high tide eroded the cliff below.

It was the eerie roaring sound of a waterfall that told residents of South Ferriby that the worst was about to happen.

The water came from the Humber at “a frightening speed”, swamping nearly every home in the lower village and rushing six miles inland up the River Ancholme valley.

It tore through homes, ripping a radiator off a wall in one, turning a fridge upside down in another and swamping the local cement works.

South Ferriby was probably one of the worst affected in the region, but in dozens of other communities people battled with rising waters as they were plunged into darkness when the lights failed.

Dave Mouncey, still in muddy chest waders, told how he had to kick his kitchen door down to get upstairs from the rising waters rushing from the Humber, behind his house.

Scotland’s entire rail network has been suspended as gale force winds batter large parts of the UK.

The north-east has been hit with 95mph winds today, while 59 flood alerts have been issued across the country.

The extreme weather has forced the cancellation of all rail services across Scotland due to debris on lines, with trains starting and terminating at Newcastle and Carlisle.







Unusually High Tide Inundates Newfoundland (Dec 4)

This little shack in Brake's Cove is normally on dry land at the water's edge, but was surrounded by the high tides in the Bay of Islands around noon Wednesday.

Water levels along the shoreline of the Bay of Islands rose unusually high at around noon Wednesday. December 4.

There was a wind warning in effect for the vicinity from Environment Canada and high waves and pounding surf were expected along with those weather conditions in some areas of western and southern Newfoundland.

There was no specific warning of unusually high tides in the Bay of Islands.

The waters had risen significantly in Humbermouth by the time high tide struck shortly after noon Wednesday, inundating a parking lot in the Brake’s Cove area. The water was also reportedly causing some damage to a wharf structure at Corner Brook Pulp and Paper.

The Western Star is waiting for a response from Environment Canada’s Newfoundland and Labrador Weather Office to explain the event.

Many people in Burgeo were also caught off guard by an unusually high tide Wednesday morning.

Boats that had been pulled up for the winter were back in the water and many private wharves and stages were partially submerged.

The worst flooding was in the trailer park, where basements of trailers were flooded.

Wayne Billard lives there and ended up with about two feet of water in his basement.

Water went over the road in three areas, but not so deep that traffic couldn’t get through.

One older man said he hadn’t seen a tide that high in decades.





Record-High Tide Causes Floods in Vietnam's Biggest City (Dec 4)
Several parts of Vietnam's largest metropolis Ho Chi Minh City were partially submerged Thursday after river tides reached their highest level in over 60 years, authorities said.

Residents waded through waist-deep water carrying valuables, with others travelling on boats and even fishing in the streets, according to local newspaper and television news reports.

The Saigon River tide reached 1.68 metres, the highest in 61 years, the Southern Hydro-meteorological Station said.

One dyke has already broken, and the centre warned that more could be breached.

The tide will continue to increase before reaching its peak early Friday, it said.

The city's flood management board yesterday urged local authorities, especially those in six heavily affected districts, to ensure safety and help residents protect their property.

UK Flooding Brings Christmas Chaos for Millions (Dec 22)
Millions of motorists and rail passengers have had their Christmas getaway disrupted by heavy flooding as bad weather sweeps across Britain.

Nearly 500 flood warnings and alerts have been issued across much of the UK, with heavy and prolonged rain forecast for large parts of the country, train services cancelled and communities cut off.

Rail passengers were warned not to travel by train in south west England and south Wales as lines were left impassable by flooding.

The Environment Agency (EA) said there was a heightened flood risk across Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Bristol, Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, West and East Sussex, North Yorkshire, South Wales, Ceredigion and Gwynedd.

Rail transport is being hampered across the South West. First Great Western is advising all customers with "non-essential travel" not to travel west of Taunton in either direction.

Almost 200 residents in Helston, Cornwall, have been told to evacuate their homes as flood waters rose through the night. At least 50 properties in the area have already been flooded.

The emergency services said the flooding in Helston posed a serious threat.

The town of Braunton in north Devon has also been effectively cut off with homes and shops under water after the River Caen burst its banks.

Seven homes in Colebrook and 15 people in Plymouth were also evacuated overnight after the river Long Brook burst its banks.

In Dorset a number of motorists have been rescued after becoming trapped in their vehicles by floods. One man was trapped in his car for five hours during the night.

The Environment Agency has issued 129 official flood warnings, stretching from the South West to the North, with the worst hit areas in the south west of the country, where there are four severe flood warnings in place.

A further 341 flood alerts, where flooding is possible, have also been issued.

Many rivers, including the Severn, Trent, Yorkshire Ouse and Derwent are continuing to rise following the heavy downpours.

In Scotland flooding from rivers and surface water is also expected to hit areas many central regions of the country.

The flooding and poor weather is expected to cause widespread delays and cancellations to travel plans on the busiest weekend on the roads and rail networks in the lead up to Christmas.

Flooding between Taunton and Exeter St Davids and a signalling problem near Plymouth has also resulted in services being cancelled in the south west of the country, with trains being replaced by buses.

The A38 from Bodmin towards Exeter is closed between the A374 Plymouth road and the A3121 because of flooding, and is expected to reopen at 8am, the Highways Agency said.

The A35 in Dorset was also closed in both directions between Bridport and Dorchester due to flooding.

The A19 is affected at the junction with the A139, with one lane on the southbound entry slip closed and the northbound exit slip road shut.

In Braunton the A361 was left under water while the Ilfracombe to Braunton road was also closed to traffic, effectively cutting off the town.

A spokesman for Devon and Cornwall Police said: "The public are advised not to attempt to drive to the town as it is flooded.

"Additionally, the A396 Tiverton to Exeter road is closed at both Stoke Cannon and Bickleigh as a result of both flooding and a landslip."

There are also delays on the A27 eastbound between B2144 and A285 near Chichester because of flooding.

Shortages of train crews has been causing disruption between Bedford and Bletchley. A landslip has also caused rail problems in the Glazebrook area near Warrington.

Flooding has also brought delays to trains between Doncaster and Scunthorpe.

Tidal Flood Warnings Across Scotland Again (Dec 19)

Flood alerts have been issued for coastal areas still recovering from severe weekend storms.

Last weekend a combination of heavy seas, tidal forces and winds caused flooding and damage on the North Sea coast from Shetland to East Lothian.

Sepa said there was now a risk of further coastal flooding in the north and east, including areas affected last Friday and Saturday.

River flood alerts cover Tayside, Dundee and Angus and southern Aberdeenshire, along with Argyll and Bute, Edinburgh and Lothians, Fife and the Scottish Borders.

A flood warning was issued for the Fife town of Kirkcaldy overnight, with high tides and strong winds hitting the town's Esplanade and low-lying coastal areas.

Sepa's Vincent Fitzsimons said: "Areas affected last weekend could again be affected, and waves of around five metres are possible throughout these areas, with potential for larger waves from Stonehaven northwards to Orkney.

"Sepa will continue to monitor the situation and would encourage people in the affected areas to remain vigilant and be mindful of the conditions in their locality and when travelling."

Stonehaven and Peterhead were hit by coastal flooding at the weekend and people in the north east were warned to steer clear of beaches and harbour areas where large waves could hit.

Ferry operators Serco NorthLink said there was a strong possibility of disruption and cancellations to Northern Isles services from Aberdeen in the run-up to Christmas because of the weather.

Metro Vancouver storm surge a climate-change preview, expert says.

METRO VANCOUVER - The combination of a king tide and a surging storm that pummelled parts of Vancouver’s iconic seawall Monday are symptomatic of what climate change and rising sea levels could mean for the region, according to an expert.

Oceanographer Susan Allen said that in coming years, the flooding seen in parts of Metro Vancouver’s waterfront could occur outside a “coincidence” like Monday’s heavy wind and rain that combined with the so-called king tides, which are nearing the end of their month-long peak in British Columbia.

“In the future we won’t have to have quite so high a tide at the time of a storm surge to get exactly what we had today because the water will be a little higher,” Allen said. “The important thing is “and.”

“If you get global warming and a big tide and a storm surge then we (have) problems.”

King tides, also known as a perigean spring tide, are formed twice a year when the gravitational pull of the sun and moon reinforce each other. Usual water levels at high tide are 3.4 metres to 4.3 metres in the Vancouver area, but a king tide can reach five metres, as it did (almost 5.5 m) at 9 a.m. Monday. A significantly lower high tide will occur Tuesday and continue to decrease this week, according to Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

Logs and debris smashed into Stanley Park’s seawall Monday, causing significant damage to the pathway from Second Beach to the Siwash Rock. The seawall was closed from Second Beach to Lions Gate Bridge as waves ricocheted over its path onto the cliff face, putting cyclists, runners and those walking at risk, said park board spokesman Jason Watson. Most of the beaches were submerged in water. Gates were placed along the path and city staff were present to direct anyone away from the area.

'Worst Storm in Living Memory' Devastates Eastern Scotland (Dec 16)
From Shetland to North Berwick high tides thundered across sea defences and engulfed homes at ferocious speed in “a perfect storm”.

The Scottish Government activated their emergency response resilience room after towns and villages, including Wick in Caithness, Peterhead in Aberdeenshire, Stonehaven in Kincardineshire and ­Kingston and Lossiemouth in Moray took a battering.

One of the worst hit was Stonehaven – which was left strewn with washed up rocks and debris by the surge.

Dozens of elderly and infirm residents of sheltered housing in the town had to be rescued, some by boat.

“Within five minutes people were up to their waists in it. Water was just pouring in my front door. In seconds, ­everything in the house was floating.

“There was a blind lady next door to me who was screaming ‘Help, help’ and the firemen came and got her out.

“Firemen came through my bedroom window. They couldn’t get the front door open because of the surge of the sea water.

Last night Janice Williamson, of the Bay View guest house in the town, which was also flooded, said: “The sea basically came right into our house and out the other end.

“The ground floor is totally devastated. It’s an absolute miracle no one was ­seriously injured or killed.”

Community council chairman Michael Innes said: “We need to be on high alert now that anything could happen.”

Peterhead’s MapCo fish processing plant, which sits next to the harbour, was destroyed by the sea and high winds.

The Scottish Government put the freak storm down to “a highly unusual combination of south-easterly gales, low ­pressure and high tides”.

Environment Minister Paul Wheelhouse said “The weather factors that combined this weekend were a ‘perfect storm’ – with those in the communities affected describing it as the worst storm in living memory.”
