As Atlantic coastlines in western Europe suffer increasingly violent wobble-induced tides, astonished residents are discovering firsthand the power of water on the move.

 

 

"The Earth wobble takes the form of a Figure 8, when seen from above the N Pole. For Europe, as we described in 2007, this forces Europe to tilt toward the northwest when the Sun is over Europe, to be followed by a swing of N America to the northeast as the Sun moves overhead there. This combined action acts like a pump, creating a void or vacuum of low air pressure in the N Atlantic. Warm humid air is pulled up into the N Atlantic. Cold air rushes down to fill the void, and swirling begins due to the Coriolis effect.

"Will this mean continuous hurricane activity along the European coast? This will be the minor effect, as with an increased wobble the storm surge will likewise increase, sending unprecedented high tides into the lowlands of Europe."

Rogue Wave Engulfs Oregon Beach (Jan 24)

A huge wave suddenly overtook an Oregon beach, sending people scrambling to safety.

Steve Raplee said he recorded the video not far from the restaurant he owns in Charleston, roughly 100 miles southwest of Eugene, on the Pacific Ocean.

"Uh oh, time to go here," Mr Raplee mutters during the video as he pans the coastline before yelling out to the others to "get out of the way!"

Frightful screams and a dog barking can be heard in the background as everyone safely scrambles up the dunes.

'Get out of here!' The shocking moment a freak wave wipes out beachgoers paddling in a rockpool... as rescue helicopters are called to lift the injured to safety

  • The rogue wave hit visitors at Sydney's Royal National Park on Saturday 
  • Shocking video shows when hundreds of swimmers are smashed by wave 
  • Swimmers try to run for safety but they cant escape the freak wave
  • Two rescue helicopters were deployed to the scene, airlifting three women 
  • Park rangers warn visitors to exercise care when walking along the coast

Distressing footage has emerged of the moment keen weekend beach revelers were catapulted along a rocky foreshore by a rogue wave at Sydney's Royal National Park.

In the video concerned swimmers scream out to those further out in the surf to get out of the water as the wave encloses on them. 

'Get out,' shouts the cameraman.

'Oh F**K brace yourselves!' Yells one man who is stationed higher up on the foreshore. 

As swimmers try run for safety, the rogue wave sweeps them off their feet and painful screams emerge from its wake.

Emergency services were called to the park's figure eight rock pools, on Saturday at 3pm, after around 100 people were smashed by the powerful wave - leaving some with serious injuries.

Two rescue helicopters were deployed to the scene, airlifting three women to St George Hospital.

A 22-year-old woman suffering from severe head injuries and a 53-year-old woman with a suspected broken ankle were among the worst injuries.

A 20-year-old woman was also airlifted after being bowled over by the freak wall of water and hitting her head. 

All three have now been discharged.

VIDEO: Monster Wave Knocks Woman off Cliff in Ireland (Apr 15)

A 21-year-old tourist from London escaped a near-fatal accident when a massive wave swept her off a cliff in Ireland.

Apu Gupta was taking video at the Wormhole on the Aran Islands when a giant wave sent her tumbling on to the rocks 40 feet below.

“I tried to run, but it pushed me straight down. It was like being in a waterfall and that probably cushioned the fall,” Gupta told the Irish Times News. “I was so scared because I thought the wave was going to come again.”

“My ankle was completely smashed and the pain was bad.”

Gupta, who was visiting the islands with her mom, told the newspaper.

Luckily, two other tourists -- a paramedic and a teacher -- were there at the time and immediately sprung into action. While one called 999 for help, the other tourist ran to the nearest house to get help.

The pair, now aided by the help of others, created a makeshift rescue rope using a backpack and jacket to help pull Gupta out of the rushing water.

Gupta, a student of economics in London, was taken to a local hospital to be treated for her ankle injury.

French Reporter Slammed by Giant Wave (Feb 20)

A French weather forecaster became a victim of the harsh seas pounding the French Atlantic coast today, when a massive wave swept her away live on television.

Fanny Agostini was reporting on the freak French weather from Rochebonne, west France, for French news channel BFM TV when the body of water knocked her off her feet.

In the footage captured today, a cameraman filming next to the broadcast is seen pointing out the massive wave as it approached Agostini and her camera crew.

Pacific Wave Bombs Wreak Havoc in California (Mar 1)

Video of wave crashing through the Moby Dick restaurant in Santa Barbara:

 

Heavy surf on March 1st caused damage and minor injuries along the Central California coast.

In Santa Barbara County, strong waves sent water crashing into a beachside restaurant in Goleta, sweeping an employee out into the ocean and underneath the pier, where he was later able to get out of the water. Another employee was pushed back inside the restaurant by a rogue wave but was not seriously hurt.

The powerful waves also flooded Hardy's restaurant with seawater, broke windows and toppled furniture.

A fierce wave also broke the windows at a nearby beachside restaurant, the Moby Dick at the Santa Barbara Pier.

At the north end of Monterey Bay, strong waves apparently broke through the foundation of a seaside home, creating a blowhole on the driveway and shooting water over the roof.

Also, a stretch of the oceanfront drive in Santa Cruz was shut down Saturday after a large sinkhole appeared in a cliff, opening the roof of a cave where homeless people have lived.
