HUNTINGTON BEACH — King tides swelled again Friday along the California coast but only minor flooding was reported in a few areas.
The worst damage Thursday was just north of San Francisco, where the tide swamped a commuter parking lot in Marin City and seeped into dozens of cars.
The tide at Marin City reached 7 feet, slightly higher than during last December's king tides, which prompted the California Highway Patrol to temporarily close a highway connector ramp due to roadway flooding midmorning.
The tides reached over 10 feet in Redwood City, a bit above predicted levels, the National Weather Service said.
Television news reports showed ankle-deep water on some streets in the Sunset Beach area near Huntington Harbour shortly after a morning high tide of over 7 feet.
