NORTHEAST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - King tides are set to start on Thursday.

It oftentimes causes flooding in South Florida’s low-lying areas because of the alignment of the earth, sun and moon adds an extra pull to the world’s oceans.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said daily high tides can rise by a foot or more.

This month’s king tides are expected to last through Saturday, before returning October 5.
