Super high tides, supermoon, superquake?! Bloggers watch out for missinfo!

Blogs and news sites writing today about Fiji's superhightide.  FijiTimes in yesterday's edition issued an article named Super high tide. Nubukalou Creek in Suva, Fiji burst its bank with seawater flowing throught city streets. This kind of events happen on regular basis due heavy rains and high tides. The numbers of tide effect grow are still unknown. Here you can see tables of high an low tide measured in Suva Harbor, Fiji. Even on evening of supermoon the measurings in Suva Harbor shoved maximum high tide 1,84meter which is common during full moon. So where does this "superhigh tide" term come from?! And why? The article was posted on March 23nd and says yesterday morning, so it refers on March 22nd. The tidal table measurements show maximum tidal growth for 1,84 meter. Very usual for Suva Harbor tides.Tides are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the Moon and the Sun and the rotation of the Earth. Most places in the ocean usually experience two high tides and two low tides each day (semidiurnal tide), but some locations experience only one high and one low tide each day (diurnal tide).

So, it's very hard for us bloggers to analyse every news we stumble upon. It is very important not to send off the unverified news or rumour that could  influences somebody's vision of world based upon hese wrong facts. Truth is there are many high tides and effects of the moon but we must separated facts from fiction. Every event now gets prefix "super" - there is supermoon, superquake, superhigh tide, super this, super that....It is important for us bloggers to check every news before publishing.
