HAULOVER (CBSMiami) — High tides are continuing to cause headaches for coastal residents in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

At the Haulover Beach Marina, the king tides, which normally occur twice a year, pushed water levels past the pier and into the parking lot.

High waters flooded streets in Ft. Lauderdale. Construction crews along East Las Olas Blvd and S.W. 25th Street were seen digging along the side of the road to let the water drain.

On Saturday, high tides are expected at 9:08 p.m.

Sunday’s tides are scheduled for 9:42 a.m. and 9:56 p.m.

Tides rise again about an hour later on Monday, expected at 10:32 a.m. and 10:45 p.m.

King Tides are expected to occur through the 21st of October, as well as November 12-18 and December 12-16.
