A new record for a mysterious four-story high tide near Vancouver Island
Vancouver: A few days ago, a tidal wave was observed in the sea which was 58 feet high and in no way less than three or four storey building.
Experts have dubbed such waves the Rogue Wave, which occurs suddenly in calm waters and then returns to normal at sea.
However, the wave was recorded off the coast of Vancouver in British Columbia, which is being called a new record. “So far we have only been able to observe a few such waves, but to our knowledge such an event occurs only once in 1300 years,” said Johannes Gumrich, a scientist at the University of Victoria.
The scientific community has also called it an extraordinary event and they are considering it. Although the incident took place in November 2020, it was formally confirmed on February 2, 2022 and details have been published recently.
In this regard, a company called Marine Labs has installed sensors on floating barrels in the oceans around the world. Near Vancouver, a boy’s sensor recorded the wave, which suddenly rose from the sea and took the form of a small pointed rock beneath which a vast reservoir of water also rose.
The stories of the ancient sailors also mention such waves, which have now been confirmed by scientists as a reality rather than a myth.
Due to its scarcity, not much research has been done on disease waves and thus a complete scientific explanation has not been forthcoming. If a wave goes twice as high as the small side waves, it is called, but they cannot be predicted.
The first such mysterious wave was recorded in 1995, dubbed the “Dripner” wave. It was born in Norwegian waters and was 40 feet high. However, now the height of the new wave has been recorded as 58 feet or seventeen and a half meters.
