Water level retreats along the Puerto plata coast line

PUERTO PLATA.- The fear seized citizens of Puerto Plata, SosĂșa, Cabarete, Rio San Juan, Las Terrenas, and other localities all along the Atlantic coast of the country, after the waters of the sea had withdrawn from the shore for several meters.

According to the provincial director of Civil Defense in Puerto Plata, Whascar Garcia, this phenomenon occurs every year when the change of season comes, and it’s related to the change of lunar phases that influences the tides of the sea.

Garcia explained that the reasons why the sea withdrew several meters in Puerto Plata, Las Terrenas and other places on the north coast was due to the combination of the fourth quarter moon phase and the tide of the sun, producing an extremely low tide which is known as “dead tides”, which influence the moon and the sun at a 90 degree angle.

According to geography, depending on the lunar state, the tide is alive (much water) and dead (little water), although the technical term is Tide of Quadrature, which precisely occurred today on the Atlantic coast that is presenting a extremely low tide.

The photo images of this natural phenomenon related to the change of the marine tide by the effect of the lunar phases, infused fear in dozens of citizens who spearding the image sthroug social networks and expressed their fear of a potential tsunami. All this fear was discarded by the authorities.
