Video of rogue wave in Italy

    
Thursday, 31 January 2013

Last week, several rogue waves hit the Italian shores around Sanremo. At around 4 pm, waves came crashing over the seawalls in Sanremo, and it appears that ports as far as Cannes in France, also experienced sudden high waves. This video taken from a superyacht in Sanremo, shows how a passerby on a motorcycle was swept into the sea, together with a parked car. The bad weather continued throughout the evening.

The unfortunate man on the bike was unhurt, though his bike was a total loss..
