Today is the first day of the February King Tides! The King Tides run from February 7-9, 2013. This is your last chance to get pictures during this season’s King Tides; so grab your camera and head to the coast! To bring this season full circle, below are some newly-submitted photos from the first King Tides of the season in November.
Update: The February King Tides start next Thursday, so the Initiative is re-posting this map to help you find the King Tides times in your area.
