Rare event sends S. Pacific waves crashing into California coasts
Massive waves slamming into California’s coast – killing at least one person and causing millions of dollars in damage – are being labelled the “New Zealand surf” because of where they are coming from. In a rare event, a big weather system between New Zealand and Antarctica has generated a heavy Pacific wide swell, bringing the waves to California. Sean Collins, chief forecaster and president of Surfline, told news website Patch.com he warned Californian authorities over the swell. “Extra caution is urged to keep the public aware and safe from these large waves and associated rip currents.” He said it was one of the biggest swells to hit with some waves coming ashore at six to seven meters. Collins said southern hemisphere storms routinely produced waves in California, but this latest one was in the top 10 percent of known waves. The US National Weather Service has warned beachgoers were urged to swim only near lifeguard towers – or to stay on the sand. “Have a good time watching the waves but stay out of the water if you’re not experienced,” National Weather Service forecaster Eric Boldt said. The rough surf was caused by the swell from a powerful storm in New Zealand, where it is winter. “It had 50-foot waves down there when it was going at its peak. The energy came up here,” Boldt told the Associated Press. The heavy surf chewed up the sandy bottom, creating potholes that can dunk unwary swimmers and contributing to dangerous rip currents. “That probably kills more people in Southern California than any other phenomenon.” said Boldt. –Stuff.NZ
Be prepared for the worst nature has to offer, not only from the sea and beneath this planet’s surface, but also from the unexpected that lies just ahead.
Jeremiah 15:8 “I made their widows more numerous than the sand of the seas. I brought against the mother of young men a destroyer at noon. I suddenly released on her agitation and terrors.”
Hosea 10:14 “the roar of battle will rise against your people, and all your fortifications will be demolished in a day of war, like Shalman’s destruction of Beth arbel. Mothers will be dashed to pieces along with [their] children.”
Watch what will soon wash up from the dying seas. A deadly brew is fermenting and will soon surface. Your coastlines will become stagnated with the death toll.
