There was no large earthquake off northern Sulawesi yesterday. The region has been actually pretty quiet after the deadly M6.2 jolt that killed more than 70 people and injured hundreds a few days ago.

Despite the absence of either a major offshore quake or a huge underwater landslide, a mini tsunami, featuring a 3-4-meter-high wave, crashed in Manado on January 17, 2021, flooding parkings, malls and damaging stalls, stone embankments and boat moorings.

According to officials, the large tidal waves were due to a combination of extreme weather conditions like high waves, strong winds, and high tide conditions.

They also added that the phenomenon may spread to other locations, warning people of large to very large tsunami-like waves crashing in a number of areas, including the Makassar Strait.

So be very cautious if you live in this part of Indonesia, one of these tsunami waves may have the final say. More extreme weather events on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle. [TribunNews, wowkeren, Inews]

  1. Yep, I fished the rocky jetty(s) all during college. One year we had storms and higher than usual tides. All the way to the parking lot. 80 yards past the near shore.

    Caught tons of fish on the incoming high tide. Opal eye, bass, halibut. Good day for me. Probably more nutrients in the water with all that activity.
