Sunset Beach, Day Island Get Flooded During Monday's High Tide

Patch user pics show water coming up onto land and flooding the neighborhood.

(Editor's note: An earlier version of this story indicated that the picture depicted flooding on Day Island. It's actually of the Sunset Beach area. We do have a picture of water coming up on Day Island as well. Sorry for the confusion)

Some residents along Sunset Beach are having a bad day.

Several Patch users say high tide and strong winds have prompted water from Puget Sound to rise and flood parts of the University Place neighborhood.

Patch user Linda Bird sent us this picture of water engulfing an entire set of homes on Sunset Beach.

"I just shot of the flooding on Sunset Beach--the combination of a high tide and strong wind," she wrote.

Sunset Beach is actually about 2 mi south of Day Island Brent. Does anyone know if this has ever occurred before?

Exactly, John. Sorry for the confusion. We also have a picture of Day Island getting plenty of waves at high tide, and I mixed the two up. Correction is made. Per your question, I'd love to hear rom long-timers about their memories. That picture is amazing.
