Video Shows How Quick a “Sneaker” Wave Can Hit Before You Know It
My wife is from Oregon and she's a big fan of the coast but we got into the discussion the other night on how deadly the "sneaker" waves can be if you aren't paying attention. The tides are referred to as a KING tide and can be deadly if you aren't expecting it.
There was that tragic story out of Oregon this week of the man who lost his two kids to a "sneaker" wave and the video below shows how deadly a King tide can be if you aren't paying attention.
The tide is high right now along the Oregon Coast and a released video of some people walking along the bank of the Pacific Ocean showed them getting swooshed with the wave. The wave was so powerful that it even moved a nearby truck.
It's a reminder that Mother Nature can be dangerous as much as she is beautiful.
