King tides are upon us and the Town of Jupiter needs help recording the instances of flooding around our community. The next king tide will occur in the mornings of Friday, November 5 (around 9:27 am) and Saturday, November 6 (around 10:17 am). If you witness any flooding on these dates, just snap a photo and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, November 12. Please include the location and the time the photo was taken when you email it. The submitted photos help the Town monitor areas prone to flooding and provide valuable insight into future sea-level rise. Flood-prone areas that may see the most impact from king tides are highlighted in pink on the map. Photos from these areas will be the most helpful to the Town.
For more information, call Jupiter Utilities at 561-741-2270.
What is King Tide?
The king tide is the highest predicted high tide of the year. King tides are also known as perigean spring tides. King tides occur when the orbits and alignment of the Earth, moon and sun combine to produce the greatest tidal effects of the year.
How to Submit a Photo:
Take a king tide photo at high tide on November 5 (around 9:27 am) or November 6 (around 10:17 am), and email it to email@example.com by November 12. Please make sure to include the photo location as well as the time the photo was taken.
