The Long Beach Peninsula and Seal Beach experienced high tides Friday afternoon, causing floods in the area.

While the high swells did not reach the homes at Seal Beach, the pier was closed until further notice after it sustained damage and due to wind conditions.
Heflin explained heavy rain causes flood to divert to the LA River and the San Gabriel River. Those rivers flow into the Long Beach area.
