MONROE COUNTY, FL – Monroe County will experience seasonal high king tides through December. King tides are unusually high tides that occur several times a year, usually in the fall, that can cause coastal tidal flooding, especially in low-lying areas. Monroe County is monitoring unincorporated areas experiencing these high tides. Residents and visitors are encouraged to prepare for king tides, be aware of their surroundings, and avoid driving on flooded streets.
In coordination with the National Weather Service in Key West, the highest king tides are expected to occur
