High Tide, High Wind
« on: October 29, 2021, 12:02:40 PM »

Here are some videos of my marina and boat. We are having a high tide and wind at same time on the Chesapeake. When we have a "Noreaster" wind from the eastern low pressure the water tends to "Pile Up" on the western shore. Of course my pier is floating a little although it is not a floating pier. The wind is gusting to 35 now on the bay and supposed to go to 50 later.  I took these videos.  Sorry could not upload videos but here are a couple of photos. Downtown Annapolis is flooded now.

My marina has closed the piers until they make repairs to missing planks. I fear my pier in particular has more damage  as it was floating off its pilings . have to wait and see.https://www.facebook.com/glenn.davis.7359/posts/10221948263157444?comment_id=10221949105578504&notif_id=1635537490103543&notif_t=feed_comment&ref=notif

here is a link to videos on facebook, hope it works.

The boat survived with no damage. The marina has replaced planks that floated away and the power is on.

Same situation in the Magothy River, water was 2 feet over the docks.  Some damage to the Marina but the boat survived with no damage.

I did see some photos of boats that floated off dock lifts that damaged the boats, power boats.
