Some of the highest tides of the year will reach Rhode Island shores over the next few days. The Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council is encouraging residents to take photos of the so-called “king tides” using their new mobile app. CRMC spokesperson Laura Dwyer said the pictures could provide a glimpse into the future.

“These tides over the next few days will really best illustrate how, how things will be how things will look with sea level rise, so this is a great way for us to visualize the impact,” said Dwyer.

The tide will reach a yearly high once more at the end of October. You can download the app at www.mycoast.org

Rhode Island's tides will be at their highest over the next week, but that may soon become the norm as sea levels continue to rise.
