VIDEO: Sandy & a very close call

Hurricanes are always dangerous beasts and Sandy as we know claimed dozens of lives and caused billions of dollars worth of damage.

At the beginning of this video you’ll see a big wave sweep up Delray beach.The first thirty seconds are the most relevant we believe and it’s another timely reminder that situations like this can be a little too close for comfort.

Also notice how quickly the sea almost returns to “normal” service.

Happens alot here on the west coast,when you get a long period swell, happens when you have waves catching up on waves and that starts to pile the water up until eventualy you get a big surge/pulse of water, that gets pushed in,just like a tsunami (i.e increase in sea level) that goes right up to highest tide level and more
