WATCH: Will The Water Overtake The Rockland Breakwater Today At 11AM?
High tide today in Rockland happens this morning at 11:11, and if you're sitting there at your desk at work, one of the highlights of your day may be watching the waters attempt to crest the historic Breakwater in the Harbor.
You can do this by watching the Rockland Breakwater Web Cam, which is operated 24/7.
The web cam is set up on the backside of the lighthouse which stands at the end of the over 4000 foot long breakwater that was built back in the 1890s out of Maine granite by the United States Army Corps of Engineers. The webcam is pointed back towards the shore, where the famous Samoset Resort looks out over the Harbor.
It's estimated that this morning's high tide in Rockland will be at 10.5 feet, while a tide of 11 feet has been confirmed to have overtaken the Breakwater in the past. So, it's gonna be close!

Last night's rain and windstorm had left over 100,000 customers without power earlier today, and while the winds have subsided somewhat, heavy rain will continue along with the chance of a thunderstorm throughout today.
