The Coastal Star

The Coastal Star will be photographing the King Tides in October/November and sharing photographs from our coastal communities.

As you see flooding in your neighborhood, we hope you'll share your photos as well.

Please send to

We will update this gallery as photos are received.

    King tides is the nonscientific term for the highest tides of the year, according to the NOAA website. The king tides will occur again at 8:41 a.m. Nov. 5 and 9:32 a.m. Nov. 6.

Boca Raton resident Ralph Marazzo uses a towel to dry out the rear foot-well of his rental car parked at the west end of Sweetwater Lane in Boca Raton. Not only did the high water created by the annual King Tides drench the inside of the car, it also shorted out the battery.  Jerry Lower/The Coastal Star
