Rare Tsunami Rocks East Coast, and New Jersey
All of us can say with truth and certainty that we made it through the 6 foot wave tsunami that rushed ashore on June 13, 2013. I’ll start printing the T-shirts! I know what you’re asking: ‘What do you mean, what tsunami?’ You weren’t aware of the rare occurrence that struck the East Coast, Bermuda and Puerto Rico, recently?
At least 30 tide gauges measuring sea level, all recorded the tsunami, most likely produced by a strong storm. Two people were injured by the wave in Orange County, NJ.
In fact, nearby Newport, R.I. recorded a peak amplitude reaching nearly a foot above sea level. It’s surreal to think we had a tsunami hit us here!
