It's becoming a trend to expect king tides as we head into another weekend in Townsville.
Locals in low lying areas are being urged to take precautions ahead of the predicted high waters.
The king tide is expected between Saturday and Sunday and may effect low lying areas including South Townsville, Railway Estate, and along Hanran St and Ogden St in the CBD.
It has been predicted that the king tide will peak at 3.90m on Saturday night around 8.20pm and Sunday night at 9pm.
Take care, and lift any valuables you have that you don't want impacted by salt water.
