Tides run high off Tybee Island

TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) - The tides were extremely high off Tybee Island on Sunday night. More than 9 feet to be exact and that meant some coastal flooding.

Drivers trying to get on and off the island Sunday night had to be extremely careful as the tide came in.

The extreme tides are a result of the "super moon." That's when the moon is closest to the earth.
