WithMaryland set to experience another round of King Tides, the MD Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is asking residents to take photos to assist them in assessing future sea levels. From the DNR’s website:
With Maryland set to experience the last King Tides of the summer July 21 through 24, the Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is asking residents in coastal areas to take and share photos of the resulting high waters and flooding. These unusually high tides give planners a look at what potential future sea level rise may look like.
The pictures will be used in educational and outreach materials to build awareness on how coastal flooding affects Maryland’s shoreline. Building a photo library will help planners understand how floods are impacting area schools, homes, harbors, beaches, public access points and other public infrastructure. DNR Chesapeake & Coastal Service (CCS) will also use this information to aid vulnerable communities that may experience coastal hazards and increased flooding in the future.
