The Douglas Local Disaster Management Group (LDMG) is encouraging residents in low-lying areas to take precautions ahead of the king tides in February and March.

The king tides are predicted at various stages in the next two months from Tuesday next week (February 9).

The LDMG recommends that residents in areas that are prone to minor flooding during the tides move valuables and their cars to protect them from the saltwater.

Low lying areas, particularly around Mowbray Street in Port Douglas, may be impacted.
