What can anyone make of this? Has this situation occurred elsewhere?

I live near the Hudson River and I have noticed that tides seem to have been getting higher in the last few years. I have noticed that some places are often underwater at high water now that used to be dry land at all times. I suppose if that is happening here, then it stands to reason that it must be happening elsewhere as well.

The letter, Klaatu83, refers to tidal predictions in local tide tables for the year, and not to actual sea levels worldwide. The question is, has a mistake amounting to 20cm. in prediction occurred or is there some other unexplained reason.

Is it "computer" error in prediction?!

I live on the west coast of Ireland and i can remember a high tide that covered the local pier about 10-15 years ago, Haven't seen ant high tide within half a meter of it since . . . . .

" tide waits for no man"

Seems the skipper on the Rena, took a change of course (short cut) to try and beat the ebbing tide so he could make it into Tauranga, the cost of waiting for next tide would have been around $6.000..estimated cost so far after running aground on reef. $130.000.000
