A strange and surprising phenomenon was registered on January 5, 2018, in the tourist resort of El Rodadero in Santa Marta, Colombia where giant waves flooded the beach like a tsunami, baffling hundreds of people who were sunbathing at that exact same time. The weird event occurred unexpectedly, without previous notice or signs. . In July, a similar phenomenon occurred and was called a ‘mini-tsunami’ by authorities.
The water reached the tent area of the beach and scared those who enjoyed the sun as a giant wave surprised hundreds of tourists who enjoyed the sun and the sea at the tourist resort of El Rodadero, in Santa Marta, reaching the pier about 20 meters from the shore.
“It was tremendous,” reports a witness, “it started as a normal wave but then it reached the tents’ area.”
