PHOTOS: King tide swamps parts of Narooma

“TIDE Watcher” Greg Watts snapped a few shots of the 2-metre king tide that swamped parts of low-lying Narooma on Thursday morning.

Infrastructure inundated included the sea wall in front of the pool, sheds at the Narooma bridge, the bike path at the town wharf, backing up the storm water drains on Bluewater, Riverview and Riverside drives.

Water also lapped at the floorboards at the Fisheries office and Taylor's boatshed.

Coastal residents are encouraged to photograph and share the images of the king tide as part of a nationwide initiative - the Witness King Tides project, coordinated by Green Cross Australia.

Green Cross estimates with climate change these will be the “normal” high tides by 2050. Find out more at www.witnesskingtides.org
