Hurricane-force winds and heavy seas cause gigantic 40 meters (131 feet) high wave in Iceland

The Road and Coastal Administration reported record-high waves at the south coast of Iceland as a severe storm swept the county on February 7-8.

A total of ten waves of 25 meters (82 feet) high and four waves over 30 meters (98 feet) high were recorded.

One wave was so powerful, the wave measuring buoy broke down, but 40 meters (131 feet) was the highest point it managed to measure. This is the highest wave recorded since 1990.

Earlier this week, the Icelandic Met Office forecasted winds reaching 35 meters per second (78 mph) accompanied by snowfall.

According to Guðrún Nína Petersen, a meteorologist at the Icelandic Met Office, the wind speed even exceeded forecast made earlier. “Such events are rare,” said Guðrún.

The Road and Coastal Administration operates 11 wave measurement platforms around Iceland. More info on weather and sea conditions can be found at [MLB]

  1. Agreed the wind is getting stronger we recently had an event here in Victoria where some parts of the wombat state Forrest was flattened to the ground I spoke to some people that lived through it and described the wind as a jet engine screaming flat out for about six hours I’ve. Never seen this sort of damage to the bush or n my sixty five years on this earth

  2. High winds being experienced worldwide are becoming normal they should continue to grow exponentially. Both in intensity and frequency.
    People will be experiencing these hurricane-force winds quite often far inland from the oceans. This is due to our weakening magnetic field which is allowing atmospheric compression due to the sun’s effects. This compression well drive the jet stream closer to the ground. And of course the jet stream has become somewhat chaotic as well.
    Notice there has been two space launch failures in as many weeks. This happened as they were launched in the middle of a solar event. Events that in the past posed no problems . A fact they have launched in solar events hundreds of times more intense. The difference is due to the weakening magnetic Shield.
    It is the earth Shields and the Sun currently driving the largest climate change on the planet. No amount of electric cars is going to stop what’s about to happen. In fact those electric cars likely won’t run once we get a EMP and with a weakened Shield it will be several times worse than the Carrington event.

  3. so like i failed to view any waves of any size cuz no one posted the video? so is this another We Say so Co. ?
