Above and below, reader Michael Y. recorded how the water was looking at the Manhattan Beach esplanade and the Shore Boulevard side of the Bay, at approximately 1:20 p.m. So, yes, this is low-tide.
Reader achiko grabbed some more of Manhattan Beach, in this film of a flooded West End Avenue earlier this morning.
Achiko also captured the Ocean Avenue footbridge, where water was lapping up underneath the boards.

Mike Cipolla said the tide was pretty darn high at around 11:00 a.m. today:

William also shows us that even after the early morning’s surge receded, the Bay’s water level was still high:
We noticed the footbridge is closed:
As is Emmons Avenue:
