I. Grey Skies and Sea Foam

The water in Long Beach is very polluted because of the port and because the entire contents of the water from the LA river dump into the area. Because of this, there are not often very large waves, and the small waves that do occur leave foam on the sand as they break. When the clouds roll in, Alamitos Beach can feel very ominous.

II. Spring Tide

Spring tide (otherwise known as “king tide”) is when the tide is the highest it is during the year. When this happens in Long Beach, we suddenly experience waves and the water often comes in much closer to the beach homes than one would normally see. We also experience flooding.
