Last Monday, June 2, 2014, many residents and tourists at Higuerote were surprised and baffled as they observed that the sea had suddenly ‘lost’ four meters, and quickly sounded alarms about impending earthquakes or tsunamis.

According to officials, the sea retreat of the sea was due to a combination of natural factors. All sources discarded the presence or imminence of earthquakes or tsunamis.

So what’s behind this weird phenomenon?

This phenomenon was observed only in two places: Cuchibano and Aguasal. Field studies have concluded that this “retirement” of the sea is normal at this time of year, but was stronger than during previous episodes due to a combination of several natural factors. First, at this time of year, tides occur during the day with greater force (linked to position of moon and sun). Water tends to travel more where the sea has little slope. With strong winds on top of that, you can observe a sudden water ‘lost’ in no time.

But I would have also been scared… I still have these terrible and terrifying images of the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia…
