Big Moon Coming

Earth/ Sky News tells us a big moon is on the way for November 14. It will be a full moon and the closest to Moon has come to the Earth since January 1948. Probably no need to mark your calendars as it might be hard to miss this one. I haven't checked the tide tables but I wonder if this could cause flooding problems in the King Salmon and Fields Landing areas?

I guess there's a good chance of that. According to Earth/ Sky News:

"Supermoons bring the highest, and lowest, tides of all.
If you live along a coastline, watch for high tides caused by the November 14 supermoon for a period of several days after November 14. These tides tend to follow the date of full moon by a day or two."

Not me, but I have heard some saying the strong gravitational pull from the Moon could cause ground to shift. Makes sense to me.
