As predicted this week’s king tides are having a profound impact on the east-coast shoreline. The Witness King Tides photostream is showing dramatic shots of Lennox Head and Tallow Beach in particular.

This shot of Tallows was uploaded yesterday. Stronger high tides are expected this morning and tomorrow.

If you would like to take part in the Witness King Tides program, check out http://www.witnesskingtides.org/ and follow the instructions. Readers are reminded to take great care on beaches during king tides.
