HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Some coastal communities in Orange County were hit with flooding due to king tides and even more high waters are expected to flow on Wednesday.
The tide moved in Tuesday night, covering many streets with a layer of water. It was enough to prompt at least one person to paddleboard along the street.
King tides happen three to four times a year and tend to take place during full moons.
The most intense flooding was seen overnight in Seal Beach and Huntington Beach, where officials mobilized public works crews to monitor the flooding in Huntington Harbour and Sunset Beach.
If necessary, crews will use portable water pumps to minimize flooding in the area.
Authorities in Newport Beach are also getting prepared.
"We're ready for tonight," said Newport Beach Utilities Director Mark Vukojevic. "We go out to all these different particular locations with pumps, ready to try and pump down any of the water that's coming from the high king tide."
Officials are expecting another king tide cycle to arrive before 11 p.m. Wednesday.
