Watching the current weather events the past few days, with waves of gigantic proportions chewing away at the coastlines of the United Kingdom and Ireland; one can’t help but notice a “ripple effect” occuring. Looking at an ariel view of the globe, it is almost as if a stone was thrown in a pond. Regardless, the waves are marching onwards with Northern Spain and the Canary Islands also on alert.
The video was taken by a Resident of Portugal, and uploaded onto You Tube,where as you can see the wave just kept on coming, leaving onlookers running away from the shore
RTP reported “Western Europe should be reached early this week by an unusual storm with large waves. The “Black Swell” – as it was christened by the storm surfing community – begins to sweep the British Isles, Ireland and Portugal from noon. The predictions of strong sea waves are painting all coastal districts to red, the most serious warning of the scale of the four Portuguese Institute of Ocean and Atmosphere (IPMA). In the Azores, the situation is equally worrying, with the IPMA pointing waves of 10 meters, which puts seven islands of the Central and Western groups also in red.”
