'Highest Tide I've Ever Seen': Water Threatens Houses in Pacific Northwest During King Tide

Water levels threatened to flood homes in Hoodsport, Washington, on Tuesday, December 27, as local media reported that high tides and heavy rainfall caused flooding in the west of the state.

Footage recorded by Chelsi Dailey shows water nearing the porches of several houses along the Hood Canal on Tuesday.

Previously posted footage from Dailey’s account shows the same location with much lower water levels.

Dailey told Storyful that Tuesday’s high tide “was the highest tide I’ve ever seen here!”

The NOAA forecast the high tide at Hoodsport to reach 13.79 ft at 8:37 am on Tuesday.

The city of Olympia saw a record high tide of 18.4 feet on Tuesday morning, according to local media. Credit: Chelsi Dailey via Storyful
