Expect coastal flooding and rips as the earth is closer to the moon.

Submit your photos: https://www.coastalreview.org/2018/07/king-tides-project-seeks-high-water-photos/

"The North Carolina King Tides Project, an international initiative to document extreme high tide events using photos, announced Monday that because of the super new moon Thursday and lunar perigee on Friday, higher than normal water levels are predicted.

King tides, or the very highest tides, are expected Wednesday through Saturday, according to the calendar on the King Tides website.

The organization is asking those who live where king tides are expected and visitors to snap photos of high water and email the images to NCKingTides@web.unc.edu."

Thanks HT. This natural event explains why the hoi toide (sorry, my bad Big grin ) is running even higher up on the beaches the past few days.
