Tides are very long waves that move across the oceans. They are caused by the gravitational forces exerted on the earth by the moon, and to a lesser extent, the sun.
Gravity pulls the ocean towards the moon and high tide occurs. The bulge on the far side of the Earth is caused by inertia.
And….Tides don’t care what is parked on the beach when they decide to come in.
“Be very careful of where you park when you go for a walk at sunrise and the tide comes rolling in along the Courtney Campbell Causeway. The sign and barriers are there for a reason,” said Clearwater Police in a social post Saturday morning.
