Swell Time: Tides crazy high in Bali (VIDEOS)

Bali & World News and Views Editors Warning.
 I'm looking out in front of my beachfront residence at some of the largest swells I've seen in 5 years I've lived here.

These huge swells are coupled with extremely high tides the next 3 to 4 days around 10 to 11 a.m.

The tides will exceed two meters and upwards to 2.4 meters. 

Anybody planning on going out into the Straits to go to another island or just for leisure should reconsider their plans. 

Be extremely careful around Rocky Cliffs and Ledges as these are the type of waves that have killed many people in the past. 
Divers, Surfers and swimmers should be extremely cautious of extraordinary strong currents that will be caused by these large swells and exceptionally high tides. 
The extraordinary of the ocean right now could in fact trigger and offshore earthquake as well as it has in the past.
 As always better safe than sorry. 
If you must go in the ocean wait until midday too late afternoon when the swells and tides will be not as strong.

High tides in Bali on July 25, 2018.

Big waves have been rolling into Bali’s southern beaches with “monster” high tides, signaling the arrival of some serious swell.
Anyone else getting some serious flashbacks to the king tides in 2016? Or in more recent memory, how about the massive waves at Angel’s Billabong last week?
The Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency (BMKG) issued an alerton Wednesday warning of waves up to six meters in Bali’s southern waters.
And with the big waves and high tides have come plenty of videos and photos on the net, documenting the intensity.

Water traffic for boats making crossings via Sanur has been suspended for the time being, Sanur harbormaster Warsita told Tribun Bali on Wednesday.
In Padang Galak, Sanur, water reportedly ripped through food stalls, or warungs and even flooded the main road.
Water also made it to the street in Kuta:

While reports of warungs getting flooded have also come in from the Tabanan area.
Just look at this insanity at Tanah Lot:

Not much better at Petitenget:
