Atlantic Storm 'Berit' Hits Tonight !

Ocean forecast for 67.37437 6.40080 67.37437 6.40080, Ocean (place)

This is the most extreme forecast I've seen for my home waters.
The radio talked about 100 feet rouge waves.

Boy , I'm glad my boat is in protected waters down south.

Re: Atlantic Storm 'Berit' Hits Tonight !

Well.. Survived , but that was a bad one. The storm was one thing , but the spring tide.. man..
The storm actually hit north of Bodoe , and hit Lofoten head on. A small island named Værøy/Vaeroey wich is world famous for its dried codfish , was hit hard.
